"Scenes from the American Songbook"
Faculty Recital with Gayle Shay, mezzo-soprano, Amy Jarman, soprano, and Jennifer McGuire, piano
Shay, Jarman and McGuire present a multimedia evening of songs and texts exploring life in contemporary America. The program opens with Blue Mountain Ballads, Paul Bowles’ musical settings of poems by Tennessee Williams. Jake Heggie’s Statuesque song sequence will include projections of the iconic sculptures that inspired the pieces. The final set will be a mini dramatic presentation — an epistolary tale of women’s friendship that combines spoken text and art song.
