About The Artist

In France, they call them chansons; in Germany, they’re Lieder. But in America, we just call them songs. And what songs! Our native repertoire is rich and diverse— and are in our own language, to boot. Some of the world’s most gifted young singers will raise their voices in a celebration of this musical bounty, including pieces by composers who will be in residence at Ravinia’s summer conservatory, the Steans Music Institute, this summer.
