Our Echoes concert explores the interplay of virtuosic solo instruments and the human voice. When the two team up, they can explore realms spoken and unspoken through words, music, and a vast variety of tones. Acclaimed Baltimore soprano Melissa Wimbish brings short works by Schubert, Vaughan-Williams, and Gounoud to life, then shares a special work by Jessica Meyer which Wimbish premiered in Carnegie Hall in 2016. The concert will conclude with an early masterpiece of lyric chamber music by Vaughan-Williams. Explore romance, lyricism and drama through a whirlwind of sweet sounds, calculated to refresh and energize the spirit!
