 Continuing VOX 3 Collective's musical survey of world cultures, hear a diverse program of vocal works from Greece. Lush and dramatic works in the classical tradition set poetic and mythological texts from ancient Greece. Learn about Spyridon Samaras, an opera composer who, in some ways, was the Greek answer to Giacomo Puccini. Listen to works by famed conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos and the prolific and popular Mikis Theodorakis. The program is rounded out by entertaining pieces in the folk idiom set in a variety of ways. Sopranos Laura Pinto and Ashlee Hardgrave, mezzosoprano Catherine Huggins, tenor Nicholas Pulikowsky, and pianist Myron Siberstein perform.
