Still Will Be Heard is a portrait of two lives intertwined. During her father’s last years suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, singer/composer Liz Queler discovered a new and unexpected refuge in the words of poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.Elements of folk, bluegrass, country, rock, and jazz breathe new life into Millay’s timeless poetry. The songs, interspersed with spoken word culled from the writings of both women, take us on a journey by turns dark, playful, fierce and beautiful. An on-stage company of actors and musicians brings these songs and stories to life, while scenic elements interweave archival images and video montages, creating a time and place where these paths meet.
