Shadow and Light, an Alzheimer’s Journey

Portland Premiere

“Shadow and Light, an Alzheimer’s Journey” by Northwest composer, Joan Szymko is an important and compassionate look into lives touched by Alzheimer’s disease. Szymko’s work for choir, solo voices and orchestra is an “expression of the enduring love that prevails when all else — all words, all memory, all physical function —  fails.”
