About This Event
The 20th century bore witness to dramatic transformations in the world order and major shifts in national and cultural boundaries. Artists frequently emerged as ambassadors for the people they represented, and composers, in particular, harnessed art song as a means of defining and expressing the unique character of a nation. To set the stage for this project, Jay Winter and Ceri Owen join Nicholas Phan to explore how art song was historically used to understand national identity, especially during times of great social, political, and cultural change.
Ceri Owen – Research fellow in music at the University of Cambridge
Jay Winter – American historian and professor emeritus at Yale University
Nicholas Phan – Tenor, curator of the Emerging Voices project
Cori Ellison – Moderator, dramaturg at The Santa Fe Opera
Major support for Emerging Voices has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage — with additional support from Grant Greapentrog, Constance & Michael Cone, and Vincent Tseng & Geoffrey Mainland.
