Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker on “Lessons From the Sea”

Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker has composed more than 170 pieces for chorus, orchestra, band and chamber groups. One of Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker’s most recent works is a cantata based on Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s book, A Gift from the Sea for the Bella Voce Women’s Chorus. We visited Walker at her Braintree home this week to find out more about the music and the inspiration for Lessons from the Sea.
