She did. The result is Songs from the Spirit, a MetLiveArts commission inspired by The Met collection. Farley brings fellow members of the NYCB—and the audience—on a journey led by traditional spirituals and new songs created by current inmates at San Quentin State Prison who, through the podcast Ear Hustle, contribute music for the performance, offering a nuanced view of an exiled population, and the irrepressible human drive to create. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=351164 The Metropolitan Museum of Art The Metropolitan Museum of Art
