January 11, 2020 @ 4:30pm-7:00pm

freewill donation

And so the ageing year began to die,
And each cold morn the sun grew later still,
And each lamented eve more heavy-lidded
Fell back beyond the wise king’s earthly realm.
Until, that is, one frigid, glassy night…

The Western Star–an epic poem, with songs, celebrating the season of Epiphany and the return of the light

A solo storytelling performance in poetry and song, The Western Star evokes a meditative, liminal atmosphere through the rhythms of language and flickering candlelight. The poem is a celebration of light in darkness, the turning of the seasons, and the ever-renewing hope of Epiphany. Come join Trinity Episcopal Church in making the journey of the Three Kings an unforgettably moving community tradition.

Jack DesBois is a Middlebury, VT-based actor, singer and poet dedicated to sharing joy through live performance. In addition to The Western Star, Jack’s unique solo repertoire includes V is the Valley, a conversation with the folk songs of Vermont, and Shakespeare’s Songs, a centuries-spanning exploration of the Bard’s music. He also performs with Opera Company of Middlebury and the Middlebury Bach Festival, and he is a Teaching Artist for Courageous Stage’s Shakespeare, It’s Elementary literacy programs.
