Shakespeare as Lyricist: Performance

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Peterson-Kermani Performance Hall
Griffiths Arts Center

To know music history is to know the history of the world. The parallels we draw between music, literature, foreign language, and theatre will enrich the understanding of the historical significance of Shakespeare’s works in multiple societies, as well as the collaborative nature of the arts and how artistic relationships advance the progress of humankind.

A pre-performance lecture panel at 6 pm will discuss the impact of Shakespeare’s songs on artists and audiences in England and continental Europe, and modern performance practice today. A performance follows at 7:30 pm. Lecture panel and performers will consist of Jon L Peacock AEA; Alana Rader, AEA; Megan Marod, AEA; Samantha Stinson, soprano; David Kozisek, tenor, Julie Miller, piano.
