In honor of Black History Month, Voces Intimae presents an afternoon of art songs by black composers and beloved African American spirituals starring Audra Scott, Malcolm Payne and Keith Critcher.
What are art songs? Simply, classical pieces for voice that are not part of a staged dramatic work like an opera or oratorio. They are usually musical settings of poems and are accompanied by a piano or other instrument.
Voces Intimae is the premier art song organization based in Dallas, Texas. This concert is co-sponsored by Open Classical’s Artist Series.
