A Book of Nonsense, sung in Texas

At a concert featuring 85 musicians at the Texas State University, nonsense verse by Mervyn Peake was sung to an enthusiastic audience. It seems that a new Peake fan club is developing in mid Texas.

From the programme: "It has become a healthy ritual that the Austin Chamber Music Summer Workshop includes a chance for the students to let their hair down a bit, with a creative project that allows them to explore music as a tool of invention, communication and socialization, with an emphasis on process rather than product. (We could all use a bit of that!) In the past several years, we have worked with both the Primary Division and Young Artists to engage them in a project that tries to extend their horizons beyond just ‘playing the dots’."
