It will soon be time for friends to raise pints of stout in honor of Saint Patrick. On the Wednesday before, I will offer a public musical prelude to the greenest day of the year with a tribute to love and beauty. On tap: new song settings of five poems by Yeats (The White Birds, The Rose Tree, When You Are Old, Song of the Wandering Aengus, The Lake Isle of Innisfree) plus a few traditional and popular tunes. It takes place from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM at the Arts Council Gallery, 318 Main St., Evansville.
