“Headwaters are where things begin.”
Song Source Festival is launching its fourth season by giving life to new works from Minnesota composers, including world premieres of music by Libby Larsen and David Evan Thomas. The concert takes place August 7, 2017.
Libby Larsen‘s Pharoah Songs is scored for baritone and piano and performed by Alan Dunbar (baritone) and Mark Bilyeu (piano). David Evan Thomas‘ work for vocal ensemble and piano duet, To Joy, featured the voices of Mary Wilson (soprano), Clara Osowski (mezzo), Jacob Christopher (tenor), and Tyler Duncan (baritone) alongside pianists Arlene Shrut and Erika Switzer.
Song Source Festival delivers fresh and innovative concerts, recitals, and masterclasses while striving to empower a new generation of performers, composers, and audiences.
