Michael John Trotta's work "For a Breath of Ecstasy" in 7 movements uses lyrics from poet Sara Teasdale's anthology Love Songs. It was comissioned in 2017 to celebrate the centennial of Teasdale winning the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry in 1918.
Accompanied by piano, oboe and strings, Trotta's gorgeous music represents, in his words, "moments of yearning, love, joy and peace in the contemplation of love and nature." For more information about Michael John Trotta, vist: www.mjtrotta.com

Come hear music from Broadway musicals, movies, jazz and popular music, such as "Till There Was You" from The Music Man, "Unchained Melody" featured in the movie Ghost, Leroy Anderson's "Blue Tango" and more.
