EVENT INFORMATION

Soprano Melissa Givens is joined by Genevieve Feiwen Lee, piano, in a program of songs chosen by Ms. Givens upon her 50th birthday. This is not just any old song recital, but one made up entirely of art songs written and/or published in the year the composer celebrated their own 50th, with texts that narrate the themes of fifty years of living. The program includes selections by Beach, Brahms, Chaminade, Copland, Duke, Gounod, Hagen, Massenet, Price, Satie, Shostakovich and others.

American soprano Melissa Givens moves and excites audiences and critics alike. A champion of collaborative musical endeavors, Givens performs with various chamber music groups, including the Grammy®-nominated Ars Lyrica Houston and Conspirare: Craig Hella Johnson and Company of Voices, the 2015 Grammy®-winner for Best Choral Performance. A featured artist in Conspirare’s ongoing tours of Johnson’s groundbreaking oratorio “Considering Matthew Shepard,” she's been hailed as a singer whose music making is “consistently rewarding” and “a pleasure to hear,” [Houston Chronicle]. Givens is a faculty member in the Pomona College Music Department.

Genevieve Lee, a Grammy®-nominated pianist and member of the Pomona College faculty, has trilled audiences in New York, Paris and Amsterdam, and from China to Brazil with her “melting lyricism” and “singing melodies” [New Classic LA]. She was recently featured with the Pomona College Orchestra performing Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor with Eric Lindholm conducting.
Free Admission, no tickets | doors open 30 minutes prior to the concert
