An evening of music and poetry featuring pianist Irving Wassermann and poet Kenneth Brewer is slated Wednesday at 8 p.m. in Utah State University's Eccles Conference Center auditorium. Donations will benefit the Alice Gorton Hart Scholarship in English Fund.
Brewer is a faculty member in the USU English department and Wassermann is a professor emeritus of music. Hart, an adjunct faculty member since 1969 in the English department, died June 2, 1987. "Both Irving and I were friends of Alice's," Brewer explains. "We think this is a program Alice would have liked to do too, with the combination of arts."Brewer will read poems based on music while Wassermann will play music based on poetry. Included will be poems Brewer wrote while on a 1987-88 sabbatical leave, some of which have not been read before or published.
