Group 11 thanks Carl Schachter for his generosity in furthering our vision. We also thank our special contributors Miriam Kartch, Laura Friedman and Paul Shneyer, Sharon Griffin, Anna Procyk, Richard Goode and The Kranzdorf Family Foundation.
The program features performances by two outstanding duos – baritone/piano and violin/piano. The musicians are Mario Diaz-Moresco and Spencer Myer, and Herdís Guðmundsdóttir and Liam Kaplan. Music will include works of Beethoven, Schumann, Debussy, and Pulitzer Prize winning composers Jennifer Higdon and George Walker. Among the highlights are John Musto’s profoundly touching and timely song “Litany”, set to a poem by Langston Hughes, and Liam Kaplan’s own prize-winning “8 Preludes” for solo piano.
