Call to Poets

Winter cardinals bring a different view to holiday imagery for December’s Noel, Noel.

Les Délices seeks original poems from Northeast Ohio poets to be performed by distinguished broadcaster Dee Perry as part of Noel Noel, a virtual holiday concert by Les Délices, which will be available online December 10-23, 2020.

Timely and intimate, Noel Noel will blend heartfelt Carols performed by the ensemble with recited poetry to create a non-denominational/secular Lessons and Carols-type program. The poetry will be a combination of beloved favorites and local works selected through this process.

LD hopes to select 3-6 original poems that resonate with holiday themes and a spirit of hope and optimism as we navigate these difficult times. Themes around family and community; winter landscapes; holiday rituals; or any other relevant imagery are encouraged.
