FEMC Recital: American Music Month

November 18, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This recital will feature music by six American composers, plus a movement from Antonín Dvorák’s American String Quartet, which was written while the Bohemian composer was vacationing in Spillville, Iowa. Performing the Dvorák is the Barclay String Quartet, which includes violinists Natalie Kasievich and Lauren Rigby, violist Jason Xia and cellist Jeffrey Borrebach.

Pianist Beverly Hritz will play “A Hermit Thrush at Morn” Op. 92, No. 2 by Amy Beach.

Savannah Simeone, mezzo-soprano, will sing three songs, each by a different American composer: “I felt a funeral in my brain” by Aaron Copland, using the poetry of Emily Dickinson; “The Black Swan” from The Medium, by Gian Carlo Menotti, and Judith Cloud’s “Alone” with poetry by Edgar Allan Poe. Baritone Marc Tourre will sing “Early in the Morning” by Ned Rorem and “Come Ready and See Me” by Richard Hundley. Collaborating with both will be pianist Sylvia Andrae.

Admission is free to club members and voluntary donations are accepted from non-members at the door.  All are invited to a reception following the recital.
