Musical Sonnets

Last summer, Flatwater Shakespeare collaborated with the Folger Shakespeare Library and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of English in offering a Teaching Shakespeare Institute on the UNL campus for 28 teachers from across the United States. Bob Hall, Flatwater Shakespeare's Artistic Director, was a featured instructor on performance strategies. Stephen Buhler, Flatwater's Education Director, gave presentations on links between Shakespeare and popular culture, including his own musical settings for Sonnet 94 --

and Sonnet 138 --

The videos were taken by Michael LoMonico, Senior Education Consultant for the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington DC.
