About This Performance

Major support for Emerging Voices has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage — with additional support from Grant Greapentrog, Constance & Michael Cone, Vincent Tseng & Geoffrey Mainland, and the Presser Foundation.

Our initial Emerging Voices program begins in fin-de-siècle Paris where a uniquely French aesthetic blossomed in the ubiquitous salon concerts of that era. In this environment of cultural exchange between artists, the oeuvre of composers like Debussy and Fauré swelled with mélodies—the French equivalent of the German Lieder.

This concert is part of our Emerging Voices Project that explores national identity and social connection through art song. Learn more about the inspirations behind New Voices in the video preview below.
