"Introduction to Art Song" with Casey Robards
Imagine your most exciting, intimate, overwhelming, and inexpressible emotions coming to life through both poetry and music. The incredible singer-pianist bond is a powerful tool of communication, beauty, and a range of life experience that many composers and performers have embraced through the writing and performance of art song.
This introductory session will include a taste test of art songs in several different languages (English translations provided). No prior knowledge of art song is necessary!
Throughout the month of July, the U of I School of Music presents Illinois Summer Music ONLINE! All sessions are presented free of charge, all you need is a computer and an internet connection.
