"My Heart Leaps Up"-Romantic Era in Word and Music


The Romantic Movement in the nineteenth century used emotions to express love, beauty, and nature through art, poetry, and music. A rebirth of the movement in the early twentieth century included the poets Dylan Thomas and our own Luella Knott. In honor of Valentine’s Day, hear renowned poet Barbara Hamby and classical flutist Vivianne Asturizaga pay tribute to this time characterized by spontaneity and intense emotions. Participants will discover the poets’ love letters as a “romantic” expression and literary tradition. Space is limited so purchase tickets early. Tickets are available Tuesday through Saturday at the Knott House for $10 per person or $8 for members. For information call 850.922.2459 Refreshments on patio include cupcakes by event co-sponsor Lucy and Leo’s.
