Students from the MPP 214 class will be presenting a recital of art songs and poetry from black composers from the 19th century through present-day. The class has been studying the development of art songs written by composers of African descent from the United States, Haiti, Britain, Canada, and Africa. They have learned about the collaborative functions between the singer, poet, and pianist in the performance of art songs. This recital and presentation will spotlight many composers who may have been neglected or unknown in the canon of art song.
