One Voice: Songs of Sorrow and Celebration
The human voice is oldest musical instrument, and in this program, Laurel Massé returns to the centuries-old wellspring of unaccompanied song. She will be drawing from the traditions of American blues and spirituals, and old English ballads and medieval chant, and offering some surprises along the way.
Copies of Ms. Massé's CDs Feather and Bone (recorded at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall) and Once in a Million Moons will be available for purchase at the concert; a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the music school programs of St. Paul's Episcopal Church.
..."a dizzying, dazzling performance... nothing short of magnificent." Greg Haymes, Times Union
