Tonight we celebrate the Art Song of Mexico! Through the intimate, dynamic setting of voice and piano, we will experience the profoundly human connection to the stories of love, life, and loss of of 19th Century Mexico. Before ear buds, before iPods, CD's, Cassettes, and record players, opera enthusiasts brought the opera home with them in the form of art songs. In art songs, composers set the poetry of their countrymen to music for voice and piano, bringing a complete cultural performance into an accessible format - no orchestra needed!
