A liederabend is a gathering of friends. It is an evening of song designed for an intimate atmosphere of a living room rather than the formal grandeur of a concert hall. The tradition began in Vienna in the early 19th century. Many romantic composers, including Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Fauré, contributed to this genre.
Voice students of professors Anton Belov and Hannah Penn will present a program of English, German, Italian and French art songs, accompanied by pianist Susan McDaniel. Light refreshments will be served.
The recital is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Linfield College Department of Music. For more information, call 503-883-2275 or visit linfield.edu/arts.
