A Poem for Autumn by Jordan Cox


October 19, 2017

Jordan Cox is a film composer and orchestrator. Cox's "A Poem for Autumn" takes its name and inspiration from Minnesota Poet Laureate Joyce Sutphen's original work. Her images of "sweet-land farms" and "elusive Northern Lights" permeate the score.

Marleen Pauley conducts the Wayzata Symphony Orchestra in a performance of this vividly colorful work. "A Poem for Autumn" is in this week's Regional Spotlight.
