About This Performance

Our first program at the Stotesbury Mansion offers an intimate experience akin to the “salon-style” events held in Europe in the early 20th century. While these English, French, and Spanish songs are laden with themes of love for one’s homeland, they also foreshadow the conflicted emotions of patriotism and the horror associated with World War I.

This concert is part of our Emerging Voices Project that explores national identity and social connection through art song.
