Greek Mezzo-soprano Eleni Katerini will present classical music compositions that were influenced, inspired by folk music or composed with folk music in mind.
Over the years, many composers have taken different approaches to incorporate folk music into their compositions.
Accompanied by pianist Connie Luk the evening will be an interesting and colorful music mini -tour illustrating the richness of both folk and classical music and the intermingling of these traditions in South Europe thanks to art songs and song cycles by composers like Bellini, Donizetti, Rossini, Rodrigo, Mompou, Ravel, Constantinides and others.
Join us for an unforgettable summer evening of Song!
