In celebration of its 20th season, Pan Harmonia commissioned composer Dosia McKay to create an innovative work for voice, flute, bassoon and guitar for the chamber music repertoire and for the citizens of North Carolina. This endeavor was funded by a North Carolina Arts Council Program Support grant and private donors.
“Rubble Becomes Art,” is a triptych featuring the poetry of Sally Atkins, Valerie Foote and Cathy Larson Sky.
The project was announced and the selected poems and poets were presented at Malaprops Bookstore/Café in Asheville on March 1, 2019. The event featured a talk by Dosia McKay about her creative process.
