“Do Not Go, My Love” - A Song’s Centenary

“Do not go, my love, without asking my leave. I have watched all night and now my eyes are heavy with sleep.” These are the opening lines of Richard Hageman’s most famous song, “Do Not Go, My Love,” which also happens to be the first one he ever wrote. It has become one of the classics of the American art song genre. But where does the song come from? Who is the beloved in the poem, and who spoke these words? This year marks a centenary since the publication of “Do Not Go, My Love,” and by delving deeper into its history and celebrating it with various performances and lectures, the Richard Hageman Society celebrates the song, the man, and the legacy.

Make Your Garden Grow

By Jonathan Blalock

If you’re like me, you’re growing pretty weary of hearing bad news. The world seems to be spinning out of control, and most analyses of the current arts climate seem to be dire. All year I had been looking forward to what would be my most fruitful opportunity this summer. It would have been a rewarding role with a lovely company. But just like a plant losing its battle against frostbite, the gig withered away and died when they announced they’d be canceling their entire season. Instead of constantly mourning the seeds that aren’t taking root, I’m taking this opportunity to praise and nurture those who are currently blossoming.
