Art Song Jamboree

  • Time: 5:15 pm – 6:15 pm
  • Location: Center for Faith and Life, Recital Hall

Luther College singers and faculty will perform in an Art Song Jamboree at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 10, in the Recital Hall of the Center for Faith and Life on Luther college campus.

The Art Song Jamboree is a twice-yearly informal performance founded and organized by Jessica Paul as an outgrowth of her continued study of women composers. The series, now in its eighth year, features a wide variety of art songs in all languages and all musical styles composed by female composers. Paul is the keyboard collaborator for the performances.

The performance is free and open to the public.

Featured performers for the Nov. 10 performance include Luther students Brianna Clancy, Emily Clay, Tani German, Matthew Knutson, Mary Lieberman, Brianna Shelly, Allison Vollinger and Nathan Wiley, all from Paul's studio; soprano Rachel Grippen Storlie, Luther graduate and professional musician; and Jennaya Robison, assistant professor and director of Luther's Aurora and Cathedral choirs. Paul will be the pianist for the singers in performance.

Luther senior Caleb Sander, 2014 winner of the Luther College Distinction in Accompanying and Collaborative Piano Scholarship, assisted Paul in preparing the singers.

The program includes repertoire by composers Judith Cloud, Margaret Garwood, Libby Larsen, Irene Poldowski, Pauline Viardot and British composer Judith Weir, recently named Master of the Queen's Music.
