POSTPONED: The Song Company Book of Travelers

The upcoming March and April SongCo CLOSE-UP performances of Book of Travelers, featuring Ethan Taylor, Hayden Barrington, and Francis Greep, have been postponed due to Covid-19 community health concerns. Following the advice of the Federal Government and the concerns of the venues, with a view to social distancing and protecting our more vulnerable ticket holders, we have postponed the scheduled performances until later this year. Existing ticket-holders will be contacted.

Ensemble Artists Ethan Taylor (tenor) and Hayden Barrington (baritone) spread their vocal wings in this Close-Up concert.

Two works from both ends of art song history – Beethoven’s majestic An die ferne Geliebte (“To the distant beloved”), the first narrative song cycle, and Gabriel Kahane’s astonishing 2018 work, Book of Travelers, a fusion of classical, jazz, and pop that weaves a musical tapestry of stories collected during the composer’s 6000-mile train journey across the USA.
