Coo, Chirp, Flap, Flutter: Birds in Song

Join soprano Sarah Davis and friends for an intimate evening of art song and chamber music inspired by nature’s beautiful song makers – from the whimsical musings of the cuckoo to the chirp of the lark, the cooing of the turtledove and the wistful, melancholic song of the nightingale. The concert features works by Debussy, Mahler, Vaughan-Williams, John Cage, Copland, and Jake Heggie with texts by Emily Dickinson, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Paul Verlaine, Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Ogden Nash.

Other performers include soprano Erica Row, pianists Carlin Ma, Brooks Tran and Serena Chin, and will feature Daniel Stein, flute, and Evangeline Liu, violin. Selected works by visual artist Mary Welch (resident artist at the Good Shepherd Center) and photographer Carlin Ma (poster photo above) will be displayed.
