"On June 7, “The Street” made its debut. . . Marcus Amaker, Charleston’s first Poet Laureate, narrated the captivating verse of scholar and librettist Alice Goodman, while an eight-person choir and a single harp, masterfully handled by Parker Ramsay, made for fluid call and response. Amaker’s alluring, interpretive cadence brought the intricacy of Goodman’s modernized text to life."
