On February 10th, 2011, Symphony Nova Scotia honoured the life and work of Nova Scotia poet Elizabeth Bishop through a musical tribute. The symphony, along with soprano Suzie LeBlanc, performed music set to Bishop's poems. These works were composed by three Canadian composers: Emily Doolittle, Christos Hatzis, and Alasdair MacLean. Emily Doolittle set music to Bishop’s poem A Short Slow Life; Christos Hatzis set music to the poems I Am in Need of Music, Insomnia, The Unbeliever, and Anaphora; and Alasdair MacLean set music to Dear, My Compass, Close, Close All Night, and Breakfast Song.
