Salon 21 takes an academic spin across American art song literature with a collaboration between voice and piano professors from Northern Kentucky University and University of North Florida. Art Song is a form of music that can simply be defined as text set to music written for voice and piano. While this genre of music was famously refined by the greats of 19th century German music, there is a wide range of 20th century American composers who have contributed significantly to this art form. Vocalists Kimberly Lazzeri and Krzysztof Biernacki team up with pianists Erin Bennett and Richard van Dyke to present a collection of pieces by iconic American composers Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland, and Leonard Bernstein.
