About This Performance
The urge to incorporate the music “of the people” into art song extended 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 an apt prelude to the final Emerging Voices concert, bringing our attention to a time and place close to home.
This concert is part of our Emerging Voices Project that explores national identity and social connection through art song.
