FESTIVA presents Music of the Bard
FESTIVA of First Presbyterian Church in Greenwood presents Music of the Bard September 8. Tenor Chandler Johnson appears with soprano Ashley Fabian in a program exploring texts from eight of Shakespeare’s plays. Greenwood musician Rodney Cleveland accompanies. From the Baroque era to the 21st century, composers have explored Shakespeare’s texts through masques, operas, lieder, melodie, and art songs. This recital celebrates the vibrant tradition of the bard’s writings and demonstrates how his works have been interpreted for over 400 years.
