The aching, lush, dramatic, and at times odd beauty of Samuel Barber and Richard Strauss's vocal compositions are featured. A sampling of their signature works, the program includes each composer's take on a "Mad Scene" (Barber's Nuvoletta and Strauss's Drei Lieder der Ophelia) and benchmark compositions (Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Strauss's Vier Letzte Lieder).

This concert is free and open to the public.
Tickets are not required; seating is on a first-come, first served basis. Government photo I.D. required for entrance to building. For more information call: 312-341-2352
