"Two Kisses" is a paired work on two perspectives of a “kiss”.  Both works explore thought-provoking and passionate texts by Plato and Shakespeare.  Each possesses similar characteristics of sorrow and the intense, passionate expression of being kissed, remembering a kiss and longing for a kiss.  "Plato’s Kiss" is a slow, sustained and delicate a cappella work. "Shakespeare’s Kiss" is an intensely adoring, moving, accompanied work of Romeo’s words shared in dialogue within the chorus. "Shakespeare’s Kiss" is dedicated to the Ward-Mellville High School Camerata and Director, Linda Contino.
