Mélodie: The Art of French Song

As part of a month-long celebration of Francophone culture at Saint Anselm College, members of the Modern Languages and Fine Arts Departments present a concert of French art songs. Mélodies are settings of lyric poems for solo voice and piano. Recognizing the unique beauty and musical quality of French romantic and symbolist poetry, nineteenth- and early twentieth-century composers molded the mélodie into a typically French tradition of song. Sharon Baker, soprano, and Sean Parr, tenor, together with Elizabeth Blood and Molly Lozeau, piano, will perform mélodies by Fauré, Poulenc, Hahn, Duparc, and Chausson. Featured also are two brief introductions by Sean Parr, Associate Professor of Music, and Susanne Rossbach, Associate Professor of French.

Wednesday, March 15 at 12:30 p.m.
