"Impossible Grace" inspires first Al-Quds Composition Award
Meena Alexander’s poem “Impossible Grace,” from TQO issue 141 is being honored by an international music competition. The first Al-Quds Composition Award, which celebrates the “cultural uniqueness of the city of Jerusalem,” requires composers to submit work that is inspired by Alexander's poem. The winning composition will be presented at the new Al-Quds University College of Music in October.
Alexander was the 2011 Al-Quds poet in residence.
