Music & poetry with composer Chris Granias & author David Pates. Chris Granias and David Pates demonstrate how the acoustics of piano improvisation and the ‘voice’ of modern poets dynamically resonate in fresh collaboration with a live audience.

David Pates, B.A., English, University of Minnesota; B.S., Education and M.A., English, St. Cloud State University, is retired from the English Department at Normandale Community College, Bloomington, MN, where he taught composition, business writing, and advanced grammar.
