The Brooklyn Art Song Society is set to showcase a concert featuring the music of Bela Bartok, Zoltan Kodaly, and Leos Janacek on Feb. 7, 2020 at the Brooklyn Historical Society in New York.

The concert will feature sopranos Lucy Fitz Gibbon and Caitlin Mead alongside mezzo-sopranos Kate Maroney and Allison Gish, as well as tenor Dominic Armstrong. Brooklyn Art Song Society Artistic Director Michael Brofman will perform at the piano alongside Joel Harder.

The program will include Bartok’s “Village Scenes” as well as Kodaly’s “4 Songs.” Finally, audiences will get a chance to hear Janacek’s “Diary of One Who Disappeared.”

The concert will kick off at 7 p.m. with a pre-concert lecture scheduled a half hour before curtain.

This is the fourth concert in the company’s “Home” series. In March, the Brooklyn Art Song Society will present a concert with music of “Grieg and Sibelius.”
