Acclaimed soprano Dawn Upshaw and singers of the Graduate Vocal Arts Program, pianist Kayo Iwama, Bard Conservatory Piano Fellows, and brass quintet Monstrare present a program of festive holiday-themed songs and ensembles to benefit the Scholarship Fund of the Bard College Conservatory Graduate Vocal Arts Program.

 

A family-friendly matinee concert, A Winter Songfest will include Grammy Award-winner Upshaw performing two works that she has previously recorded: Vaughan Williams's This Is the Truth Sent from Above and Rodgers and Hart's Sing for Your Supper. The program also includes holiday classics such as Irving Berlin's White Christmas, Walter Kent's I'll be Home for Christmas, Simple Gifts arranged by Aaron Copland, and Argento's "Winter" from Six Elizabethan Songs. Monstrare, a new brass quintet of advanced musicians from The Bard College Conservatory of Music, will perform excerpts from Monteverdi's Madrigals in addition to other pieces.
