About This Event
Today, art song faces its own crisis of identity amid the abundance of cultural opportunities and options for virtual connection. Alex Ross and Susan Stewart join Nicholas Phan to explore the role of poets and composers in communicating the human experience and fostering empathy between people. This second panel discussion explores why this art form, with its unique intersection of poetry and music, remains a powerful vehicle for social exchange.
