Another of Wood's vocal works, three songs from his “Four Deadly Serious Songs,” settings of poetry by Stephen Crane, W. H. Auden and Ted Hughes, will be performed by award-winning baritone Andrew Garland and former Acuff Chair holder pianist Donna Loewy in April as part of the Marilyn Horne Foundation “On Wings of Song” recital.
