Traditional Liederabend to be performed at Linfield

LiederabendLinfield students will perform a traditional musical Liederabend Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Fred Meyer Lounge, located in Riley Hall.

A Liederabend is a gathering of friends to enjoy an evening full of music. The event is more intimate in comparison to the traditional concert hall. Liederabends began in Vienna, Austria, in the 19th century, where the genre was brought to new heights by Franz Schubert and later perfected by Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf and Richard Strauss.

Linfield classical voice students taught by professors Anton Belov and Natalie Gunn will present art songs in German, French, Spanish and English. They will be accompanied by pianist Susan McDaniel.

The Liederabend is free and open to the public. For more information, call 503-883-2275, or go to
