Vocal Arts: Her Light Escape
Saturday, September 21 2019 @ 7:00 pm
“Her Light Escape,” a program of art song in English for soprano and piano that mirrors the cyclical nature of the changing seasons, performed by the Spire Duo, Emma Rose Lynn. The program begins with the changing colors and falling leaves of autumn, ventures through the harsh elements and episodic slumps of the winter, rejoices in the burgeoning of new life in the spring, and finally arrives in the welcome quietude of a warm summer, reflecting on both sentimental moments of the past as well as life’s present beauty.
The words of master poets such as Emily Dickinson, W. H. Auden, and Robert Louis Stevenson capture the joy, dejection, wonder, and renewal of a year in a life well-lived through the music of composers such as Benjamin Britten, André Previn, Dominick Argento, and more. “Her Light Escape” is the first concert in the LCCC’s new 2019/20 Vocal Arts Series.
Tickets are $25 general, $23 for seniors ages 60 and up, and $12 for youth ages 18 and under.
