A recipient of an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of New Hampshire, Paltrineri’s poetry has appeared in Alice Blue Review, Atlas Review, decomP, Painted Bride Quarterly, Powder Keg, and other venues, including two anthologies.
7:30 pmMusic Mondays Concert Series: Wayfaring - James Falzone and Katie Ernst King Chapel
Wayfaring, a duo that takes its name from the beloved American folk song “Poor Wayfaring Stranger,” appears in Mount Vernon Oct. 1 to open Cornell’s 2018–2019 Music Mondays season. Their concert is at 7:30 p.m. in King Chapel and is free and open to the public. Wayfaring is a duo project between bassist and vocalist Katie Ernst and clarinetist James Falzone. What began as a casual meeting between like-minded players has formed into a collective of unusual nuance and depth, drawing on source material from the jazz tradition, hymns, folk songs, and original compositions. Wayfaring performs a wide array of material including jazz, American folk, hymns and spirituals, arrangements of popular songs, and originals. Admission is free and open to the public.
