Setting Poetry to Music

Warren Wilson alumna Marcia Pelletiere (poetry, ’93) and her a cappella group “The Accidentals” have recorded a number of poem-songs that fit verse to music.

Visit their website to listen to “The Mermaid,” with lyrics from the poem, “Concerto” by Eleanor Wilner, along with songs based on poems by e.e. cummings, Emily Dickinson, Carl Sandburg, and others.
