Poetry: The Use of Rhythm to Deliver a Message

Learn the inside story that is being told behind every piece of Poetry. First hear from a Musical Composer about the concept of a motif in a piece of music and how it drives the tone of any musical piece. Then learn from an expert in Classical Poetry the "motif" behind any given piece of Poetry and the use of this element to convey a message. Hear from a Freestyle Poet about how the delivery of a piece of Poetry using the proper rhythm tells a story that goes far beyond the mere words. Finally, hear from a Soloist Performer who sheds light on the differences between using words and music to deliver a message as opposed to music alone.
