Beginnings, Middles, and Ends explores the moments that make up our lives in song. Works that bookend careers, meditate on mortality, and follow the course of a lifetime to show us what it means to live a life.
Two titans of American vocal music, Tom Cipullo and Herschel Garfein, explore the final stages of life through some of their most ambitious and poignant works. Pre-concert discussion at 7:00PM with composer Herschel Garfein.
