Mindy Cooper Directs “Still Will Be Heard” for Mondavi Center
Professor Mindy Cooper is the director of Still Will Be Heard which shows at the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts on Nov. 17, 18 and 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Featuring music by Liz Queler and Seth Farber and a book by Liz Queler and Edna St. Vincent Millay, Still Will Be Heard is a contemporary music theater piece that features 17 of Millay’s poems set to Queler and Farber’s eclectic blend of folk, rock, jazz and bluegrass music. The songs, interspersed with spoken words culled from the writings of both women, take us on a journey by turns playful, dark, fierce and beautiful.

This performance is being presented as part of SHAPE (Science, Humanities and Arts: Process and Engagement), an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded program in which UC Davis students encounter the humanities, arts and sciences integrated to express and examine the power each holds as a means of responding to our world.
Petr Janata, professor in the Department of Psychology and Center for Mind and Brain, co-teaches a SHAPE course, “Creative Process in the Arts and Sciences: Parallels and Intersection,” with Cooper in conjunction with this performance.
