The Notes Will Carry Me Home: Writings on Music from Evansville and the Tri-State
Edited by Joshua Britton
From the Evansville Tri-State, and for the benefit of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra, comes this anthology from twenty-eight local authors. Poetry inspired by Beethoven, Miles Davis, and Tchaikovsky; personal essays on Irish music, J. S. Bach, the Evansville Philharmonic Chorus, and choral music in Africa; and insightful writings on St. Hildegard of Bingen, the history of the radio, music in the films of Stanley Kubrick, and musical venues in historical Evansville. EPO Music Director Roger Kalia reflects on the difficulties of navigating an orchestra season through a pandemic, while EPO Conductor Laureate Alfred Savia reflects on his influential tenure on the podium. The Notes Will Carry Me Home is a love letter to Evansville and the arts.

“Just as the cycle of frogs starts with the smallest of flashes in the waters of life and ends with a leap into the unknown, Britton’s Tadpoles captures shots like a hidden photographer documenting first steps of children to their inevitable mistakes and how tides cause us all to change. These collected stories take the reader from the eyes of a kid to parents and guardians across genres of drama, crime, dystopia, and the apocalyptic.”
- Tim Heerdink, author of Razed Monuments and The Human Remains
