The foundation is very proud to announce that Songs of Hadrian, a song cycle composed by John David Earnest, with texts by Arch Brown, will have its premier performance at the Red Note New Music Festival at Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois, on April 3.

Mr. Earnest is a longtime member of the foundation’s board and was a close friend of Mr. Brown, collaborating with him on several projects. Songs of Hadrian, which will be performed by tenor Justin Vickers accompanied by pianist Tuyen Tonnu, is inspired by the relationship between the second-century Roman emperor Hadrian and his lover, Antinoös.
