Debra writes: "The theme for this spring concert is poetry. The program includes four of my songs, inspired through the years by my students in the Mannes Prep. The styles range from art song to bossa nova."

The texts are "Time to Rise" by Robert Louis Stevenson, "There Was A Little Girl" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "There is No Frigate Like a Book" by Emily Dickinson.
