The program will feature Benjamin Britten’s “Canticle II” (the story of Abraham and Isaac), “Canticle III” (Still Falls the Rain), Vaughan Williams’ “On the Wenlock Edge” and Robert Deemer’s “Three Wedding Songs.”
Named after Florestan, the alter ego of 19th-century composer Robert Schumann, Florestan Recital Project was founded in 2001 to perform and promote song repertoire. Florestan members Joe Dan Harper (tenor) and Anne Kissel (piano) will be joined by Dickinson College faculty Lynn Helding (mezzo-soprano), Blanka Bednarz (violin), Elizabeth Kuefler (viola) and Jeb Wallace (horn) for the concert. Dickinson junior Aubrey Holmes (violin) and guest artist Cheung Chau (cello) also will perform. Florestan joined Dickinson College as musical artists-in-residence in 2007.
