VIDEO: Georgia Stitt Composes and Performs 'Central Park at Dusk' Song Cycle

Georgia Stitt is working on a song cycle while quarantined.

She took to YouTube to share the first one-minute song cycle, titled Central Park at Dusk, based on the poem by Sara Teasdale.

"Finished this song today for my one-minute song cycle," she writes. "I'm a better composer than singer so imagine your favorite voice. I just wanted to share a moment of creation. I'm hoping to record all of these one-minute songs at some point later in the year."

Check out the video below!
