26th Annual Week After Art Fair Song Fest: Special Guest Artist – Liz Pearse

July 23 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Admission: $5 suggested donation, open seating

Singing while accompanying oneself at the piano is not a “new” endeavor– but in the realm of art song, it is certainly unusual. Performer Liz Pearse’s self-accompanied recitals hearken back to the era of the salon:  An informal, intimate, and fresh atmosphere in which to absorb songs both old and new. This particular evening presents some gems of 19th/20th century song, including a centennial celebration of Francis Poulenc’s La bestiaire, alongside contemporary works inspired by animals.

The evening will conclude with the world premiere of Ann Arbor-based composer Christopher Burns’ number opera,
a multi-movement work exploring the beauty of mathematical equations.
