"There was also some lovely singing ...not just from the leads but also from Megan Roth as the head of that chorus-trio (she was also most at home with her Andrews-Sisteresque routines)."

Performed by Yale Choral Artists under the direction of Jeffrey Douma, this world premiere is modeled on Bach’s St. John Passion oratorio, but centers on the lives of legendary poets Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, and Emily Dickinson.

  • During a time when classical instrumental music underwent a remarkable metamorphosis (from Brahms to Stravinsky and beyond), the popular love song experienced a parallel evolution, from the romantic lieder of 19th century Europe to the "American Standard" of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. This charming program will pair melodies from romantic masters such as Brahms, Schubert, Debussy, and Saint-Saëns with offerings from American songwriters such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.

  • This second concert of our second season is unique in that we selected sets of individual songs to represent three different aspects of our theme, The Spirit. The first section focuses on songs about death and the afterlife; the second grouping features mythological spirits and legends; and the final set revolves around representations of the human spirit in nature. Though the musical language of this program is broad, the connecting thread is that of The Spirit, which, like music, is universal.
