About Outis: What do you get when you combine the genius poetry of Edgar Allan Poe with the brilliant music of Ludwig van Beethoven? The answer: “Outis” Released in January 2009 for the Poe Bicentennial, “Outis” creates the illusion of two of the most influential artists of the Romantic Period being in a rock band together. Songs include: “Lenore,” combining Beethoen’s Lenore Overture No. 3, Op. 72a and the words to Poe’s “Lenore;” “Alone Within a Dream” combining Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 in A, Op.92 II Allegretto and the words to Poe’s “Alone” and “A Dream Within a Dream;” among others.

The event is sponsored by the Office of Government & Community Affairs and Lois Rakoff, Community Director of the Poe Room.
