Vocal ensemble The Meadowlark Project presents a recital of new music exploring ideas of nature and climate and their impact on the human experience in the American Midwest. Set against the backdrop of Larry Schwarm’s photographs in the exhibtion “Kansas Farmers”, the evening includes art songs by Kansas composers Ben Justis, Bonnie McLarty, and Frank Nawrot with texts by Kansas poets Megan Kaminski, Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, Elizabeth Schultz, and Wyatt Townley, and piano accompaniment by Alejandro Avila. The Meadowlark Project (tenors Neal Long and Brian Sussman, mezzo-soprano Mackenzie Phillips, and soprano Gretchen Pille) performs and facilitates the creation of contemporary vocal works.
