Shakespeare influenced all aspects of the arts, including the world of art song. An art song might be defined as “a poem set to music, usually for trained voice and piano accompaniment. Famous composers of art song such as Schubert, Wolf, Chausson, Vaughan Williams and Finzi among others, combine their beautiful music with the words of Shakespeare.
LOT is excited to return to the Castle Tea Room to recreate the atmosphere of a parlor concert, bringing intimacy between performer and audience. Shakespearean Sonnets will be recited as well. Pre-performance and intermission hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and spirits are part of this special evening.
Seating is limited. More information here. Tickets available at the door or by clicking on the button below.
