The New York Festival of Song (NYFOS) opens its 20th
Anniversary season on October 16 and 18 with No Song is Safe From Us, an evening of song encompassing four
musical genres that have become NYFOS hallmarks: art song, songs by
contemporary American composers; Latin song from the Iberian Peninsula to Cuba
and South American, and American popular song.
Composers range from Mompou to Musto, Grieg to Guettel, and
Bernstein to Berlin. The evening is composed of highlights from
four past NYFOS concerts: Latin Lovers
(Latin song); Since the Seventies (contemporary
American songs); Songs of the Midnight
Sun (art song); and Songs of Peace
and War (popular song). The concerts
take place at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, 57th Street and 7th Avenue.
Artists will include sopranos Michelle Areyzaga and Jennifer
Aylmer, tenor Javier Abreu, baritone William Sharp, and eight students from the
Juilliard School's Vocal Arts Department, with
Steve Blier and Michael Barrett at the piano.
Single Tickets are available directly from NYFOS only
