Memorize You... -song cy·cle

Memorize You is an original 50min song-cycle written by Artistic Director Gail Phaneuf.  The songs tell the story of the relationship between a husband and wife and a younger woman who complicates their lives.  Through the songs we explore the journey of love, betrayal, loss, temptation, passion and growth in the entwined relationships.
