Keyne Cheshire, Associate Professor of Classics
- Jon has collaborated with Dr. Keyne Cheshire to produce a musical interpretation of Sophocles’ tragedy, Women of Trachis, transposed to a contemporary, Western setting. After Cheshire translated the lyrics from the original Greek, Jon composed folk music that re-imagines the emotions of Sophocles’ narrative arc, making the work more accessible to a modern audience. The project recognizes the central importance of performance in Greek literature and the timeless relevance of its tragedy as it relates to the universal human experience.”
- In addition to the live segment of Jon and Keyne’s work, listen to “Let Him Come,” a recorded track from this summer.
