Mount Holyoke sets a poem to music

Message from the Mount Holyoke president:

Dear members of the Mount Holyoke community,

Season after season and year after year, the beauty of Mount Holyoke and the light of learning connect us, across generations and across the world.

In “What Shines,” Marjory Wentworth ’80, poet laureate of South Carolina, evokes this sense of wonder and shared experience. May her poem, set to music by composer Nathan Jones and performed by the Glee Club for Vespers 2016, bring you a moment of connection to the College, to your own memories, and to friends near and far.

And, in this, the season of light and holidays, and throughout the coming year, may you find joy, fulfillment, and occasion for celebration.

Sincerely,

Sonya Stephens
Acting President
