Syntax errors galore this weekend at the Montgomery Senior Center

An item gleaned from an email from the Newburgh Art Salon Yahoo Group about a choral performance built around the structure of E.E. Cumming's work caught my eye. The performance Cummings and Goings, composed by Ada Margoshes with additional songs and orchestrations by Steve Margoshes and directed by Nina Janik is a "lightly staged musical show, rather than a concert".
The performance will be staged on April 26 at 3pm at the Montgomery Senior Center, 36 Bridge St.
A blow-by-blow "review" of last week's performance of the piece at the Thrall Library in Middletown ran in the Times Herald Record earlier this week.
I have a soft spot for E.E. Cummings and I've been debating whether to go or not. It sounds like one of those things that can be utterly disasterous or pleasantly surprising. But even the utterly disasterous can be mighty entertaining (Cases in point: One particularly and brilliantly awful burlesque show I saw on a Valentines Day long passed at the Bluebird Theater in Denver and, of course, this memborable story from This American Life. So I'm leaning toward going. If you're interested in going, Tickets are $10 and reservations are suggested. Call 845.457.9867 for tickets/info.
