This event has now finished
Join us for the latest in our innovative VoxBox song series. LiederkrAZZ will bring Schumann’s masterful song cycle, his Liederkreis, Op. 39, into sparky dialogue with jazz responses.
Students from the Vocal & Operatic Department will join forces with the Jazz Department to bring together the seemingly opposed in this startling evening of music making. Come and experience what happens when jazz and classical meet and breakdown the perceived barriers of freedom versus preconception, creativity versus re-creativity.
This project attempts to build bridges rather than divide, unite where differences occur, encourage and celebrate diversity, support each other’s styles rather than mitigate their idiosyncratic ways, and prove Aristotle right when he said ‘[…]many things are not merely a complete aggregate but instead some kind of a whole beyond its parts’.
Do join us for what promises to be an exciting, controversial and invigorating evening as we juxtapose two styles that seem so different, yet have so much in common.
