Journeys of the Spirit

Explore life through the eyes of spirited Spanish girls, a wanderer, and the sting of love.  Our guides will be the Renaissance poet Petrarch, Spanish poet Alfred de Musset, German romantic Eduard Mörike and Robert Louis Stevenson.  Join our team of musicians as they take us on a captivating journey exploring wanderlust and the restless human spirit.

Performances are in Edwardsville, IL and St. Louis, MO.  Pianist Nancy Mayo is joined by soprano Karen Kanakis and baritone Jacob Lassetter.

The program includes Vaughan Williams' Songs of Travel, canciones by Pauline Viardot, Lieder by Hugo Wolf, and Liszt's Tre sonetti del Petrarca.
