Emerging Voices:
Art Song & Social Connection

January 13-24, 2020
Nicholas Phan and Myra Huang

Three years ago we approached tenor Nicholas Phan about curating a special project that would explore and illuminate themes of social connection and identity through art song.

The result is Emerging Voices, a collaborative project featuring 13 world-class artists and ensembles, six concerts, four world premieres, special projection design, panel discussions, and more.

“The reason art song endures is because the themes that it’s grappling with are themes that we still confront today. The mystery of life doesn’t really change,” says Nick in our project film. Watch it to learn more about Emerging Voices, and explore the project further through the individual program films, in-depth essays, the Philadelphia Inquirer‘s project preview, and event and participant information below.
