The 2017 Piccolo Spoleto Festival is presenting the world premiere of a jazz setting of the poetry of Marcus Amaker, the first poet laureate of Charleston. The In-Between, featuring classical soprano Jill Terhaar Lewis, saxophonist Robert Lewis, and pianist Gerald Gregory, explores repertoire that resides in and in between classical and jazz genres. Joined by Amaker, the musicians will perform new versions of Amaker's poems. The performance takes place June 5 at the City Gallery.
