This concert will feature Poe's best-known poetry and prose including The Raven, The Tell-tale Heart, and The Bells, in a dramatic musical setting. The father of American horror-fiction, Poe's works have given chills to generations since 1827. bLuE dahlia (bluedahlia.com) is a modern music quintet that specializes in blending the exotic and familiar. Textural guitars and soaring vocal harmonies with ethnic, orchestral percussion and delicate woodwind accents create a dense understory that drenches Poe's gothic flights of fancy with profound emotion. A successful creative venture since 1995, Blue Dahlia continues to expand its musical horizons. The group's body of work includes numerous recordings, live performances of original soundtracks for silent film, commercial sound tracking, artistic collaboration and more.
