Lend an ear to Lyric Fest’s rich celebration of America singing. Hear our “strong melodious songs,”  of Appalachian mountains and tent revivals, of concert halls and cotton fields, the west, the east, the whaling north, and Faulkner’s south. An all American roster of composers including Stephen Foster, George Crumb, Ives, Barber, Copland and more. Featuring a commissioned work by Kile Smith, a commissioned new arrangement by John Conahan and a premiere finale by Daron Hagen. With Tony Boutté, Troy Cook, Suzanne DuPlantis, Michelle Johnson, and Laura Ward, Piano.
