GENERATIONS: a night of poetry and music

On Friday, December 9th, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., (SCENE) Metrospace presents "GENERATIONS: a night of poetry & music."

"generations: a night of poetry & music" is a benefit for The Listening Ear Crisis Center with proceeds going toward the Capital Area Sexual Assault Response Center, a community-wide, years-long endeavor by Greater-Lansing advocacy groups.

The suggested donation is $5-$10.

"generations" delivers collaborative performances by poet Melissa Dey Hasbrook, oboist Gretchen Morse (Lansing Symphony Orchestra), and band The Heads. The artists chose poems from Hasbrook's book "Circle...Home," around which the music will flow.

The program explores the impact of war throughout generations, whose survival offers hope and inspiration despite cycles of violence. The event observes the international campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence (Nov. 25 - Dec. 10) with its 2012 theme, calling for an end to militarism and gender violence.

This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing

Partners include the RCAH Center for Poetry at MSU and Peace Education Center of Greater Lansing.
