This unique and moving concert memorializes World War I using poetry and music by soldiers from the period. Relive history through sound!
Baritone John Brancy and pianist Peter Dugan have been redefining the art song recital since making their critically acclaimed debut of A Silent Night at the Kennedy Center in 2014. Hailed by The Washington Post as "so refreshingly, marvelously different," that program pays homage to the centennial of World War I through the music of composers who lived through, fought in, and died in the Great War.
Since then, Brancy and Dugan have been presented in recital by Carnegie Hall, the Joye in Aiken Festival, St. John's College, the University of Chicago, Société d'art vocal de Montréal, and the ny historical society among others. Both artists maintain lively and unique individual careers. Brancy has performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and on tour with Glyndebourne Opera. Dugan has performed as a soloist with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, and in duo collaborations with Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell.
