In conjunction with the CoOPERAtive Program, singers Kelly Ann Bixby, Jeffrey Halili, Randall Scarlata and Elizabeth Shammash will join Suzanne DuPlantis and Laura Ward, pianist, to premiere newly commissioned settings by Benjamin C.S. Boyle, Douglas Cuomo, Michael Djupstrom, Daron Hagen, James Primosch and Maurice Wright as well as beloved settings and little known gems. Narrator Michelle Eugene will read selections of poetry to round out this special program.

The overall mission of Lyric Fest is to bring people together through the shared experience of song by offering to diverse audiences lively, theme-oriented voice recitals designed to edify, educate, stimulate dialogue, and foster community.
