Vocal music by Schumann and piano solo music by each of the two composers will be performed by URI voice and piano students selected by audition. In addition, URI voice faculty artist and Boston Camerata soloist soprano Margaret Frazier will sing Er ist’s, an upbeat song about the arrival of spring and Aufträge, a light, rapid, playful song about a young man’s attempt to send messages of love to his sweetheart through a wave, a dove and the moon. She will be accompanied by Manabu Takasawa, who is director of the URI Piano Program and an internationally recognized pianist. Student vocalists will be accompanied by student pianists. Dr. Takasawa is the coordinator.
Concerts seats are available on a first-come basis. The box office opens 45 minutes before the start of each concert. The URI Fine Arts Center Concert Hall is handicap-accessible, and parking is available in the lot behind the building, off Bills Road.
