Paola_and_sarah_sophie_photo_by_guy_furrow_small As national organizers for The Women’s March and leaders of The Resistance Revival Chorus, artist activists Paola Mendoza and Sarah Sophie Flicker see their purpose as connecting fellow members of The Resistance to the moments of joy and transcendence that come with being a part of history in the making. If there was ever a time when we need to consistently keep our souls replenished for the fight against injustice, it would be now. Hear how Paola Mendoza and Sarah Sophie Flicker use the power of art and culture in activism, and what they learned in documenting The Women’s March for the newly released book, "Together We Rise" in the latest episode of Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller.

The Song of Songs

From WQXR | 58:29

"I am sick with love." These five words say so much. Love is like a sickness and it affects the entire human race.

The Song of Songs

WQXR

Wqxr_logo_nofreq_small

This line comes from the Hebrew Bible as part of a collection of poems known as "the Song of Songs." And they are words that still speak to us today. The Song of Songs confounds and tantalizes the faithful. It seduces composers, inspiring works by Monteverdi, Bach and contemporary composer Nico Muhly. In fact, there are dozens of musical settings, each dancing between earthly pleasures and heavenly aspirations.

Stage and screen star Jessica Hecht ("Fiddler on the Roof," "Breaking Bad," Dan in Real Life," "Sideways") hosts "The Bible’s Great Romance: The Song of Songs," a one-hour special of this sensuous verse married with choral music.
