Excerpt from the music tour's pamphlet:
The poet, musician, and scholar was also a practicing lawyer. Sidney Lanier briefly practiced law with his father, Robert Sampson Lanier, after returning to Macon to marry Mary Day. While practicing law, he wrote poems for magazines to supplement his family’s income. One of his best known poems is “The Marshes of Glynn.” He would later serve as first chair flute in the Peabody Orchestra and teach at Johns Hopkins University before his death at the age of 39.
