Sung with Words is a project funded by a 2014 Chamber Music America New Works Grant. It presents a collection of songs composed and arranged for eight musicians by pianist Helen Sung to the poetry of the former chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts and current California Poet Laureate, Dana Gioia.
