“Songs from Hibernation”

    A Live-Stream Recital Series

    Artists from our 2020 – 2021 roster will present mini-recitals of just a half-hour in length, featuring repertoire from a broad range of composers.  Each singer will present some of their old favorites, as well as new works they’ve discovered as they have explored literature by BIPOC and woman composers.  Times and dates vary from weekday lunch-time, to early evening, to weekend afternoon cocktail hour.  All content will also be posted online in case you cannot enjoy them live.

    Thank you to each artist, contributing their time and effort as a mini-fundraiser for dell’Arte to continue its mission ….
