Love's Perspective, a voice recital
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 • 9:12am
Soprano Hedy Tukey will present “Love’s Perspectives,” a voice recital on Sunday, October 6 at 3:30 PM in Lile Hall at Christ Church in Summit.
Ms. Tukey, accompanied by Warren Helms on piano, will perform art songs by selected 20th century composers from South America, America, France and England.
Each song is a musical setting of text by a well-known poet, although many of the songs are rarely heard. Most of the selections offer a perspective on love. Included in the program are songs by Aaron Copland with text by Emily Dickinson, Robert Owens with text by Langston Hughes and Benjamin Britten’s interpretation of the Thomas Moore poem “The last Rose of Summer.” Others include Fauré, Dupon, Delius, Poulenc, Ginastera, León, and Britton.
A $10 suggested donation, and a reception with refreshments will follow. We are grateful to the Christ Church Music & Arts Committee for production support.
Christ Church is located at 561 Springfield Avenue, Summit, NJ.
