Lyrik und Lieder: An Evening of German Art Song and Poetry

Students in the UW-Green Bay German and Music programs will be performing an evening of “Lyrik und Lieder” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 in newly renovated Studio Arts 101. Music vocalists and German literature students are pairing up for an evening performance of German poetry (Lyrik) and German art songs (Lieder). The vocal students will be singing the musical pieces to piano accompaniment, and the German students will recite the poems and provide some brief historical background. The initiative is meant to provide a broader appreciation for the tradition of German art song by combining a discussion of the poem and the poet along with its musical setting. The concert is free and open to the public.
