Our 2020/21 Winter Series begins with “Love Letters”, a vocal recital of intimate sentiments performed in an intimate space. Performed by artistic directors Scott Lykins and John Taylor Ward, highlights include the US premier of Gerald Barry’s Beethoven, a witty and heart-rending setting of Ludwig van Beethoven’s own love letters, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s sumptuous and seldom-heard Songs of Sun and Shade, as well as works by H. T. Burleigh, Kate Soper, Beethoven, Franz Schubert, and Erich Korngold.
