Earlier this year, Clarksville composer Jeffrey Wood debuted portions of a new song cycle about the so-called Elephant Man, Joseph Merrick, with lyrics taken from poems by Kenneth Sherman. Now the entire collection of songs is ready to be performed in full. Wood and baritone Jeffrey Williams offered us a sample of selections, covering various points in Merrick's adulthood, ahead of their concert at Austin Peay State University.
