About This Performance
The urge to incorporate the music “of the people” into art song stretched from England to Brazil. In America, composers drew inspiration from traditional tunes, folk songs, and spirituals that expressed the nation’s diverse character. This second salon performance serves as a wonderful prelude to the final Emerging Voices concert, bringing our attention to a time and place close to home.
