So & So Reading Series

Julian Semilian slathers the air thick with surrealist image and dream. By day, he teaches editing and sound at the UNC School for the Arts in Winston-Salem, expertise he acquired in Hollywood editing feature films and movies-of-the-week. But his passion is the poetic avant garde: His book Osiris with a Trombone Across the Seam of Insubstance is revelatory, and his translations from Romanian of poets Paul Celan and Gherasim Luca are essential. He reads with his wife, accomplished soprano Laura Ingram Semilian, who recently topped the Southeastern region's Metropolitan Opera competition. Her solo program Szalon Transylvania: True Tales of Love & War from the Carpathian Basin, covers Bartók and Kodály in the original Hungarian, and her translations of the Magyar folk songs that those composers collected are forthcoming in Hyperion. The 8 p.m. reading is free. —Chris Vitiello
