Featuring Robert Schumann's song-cycle, "Dichterliebe" and Bach's choral motet, "Jesu Meine Freude."  Also African-American Spirituals and solo works by Verdi and Handel. Have we not reached a point where the culture of death and willful destruction of our humanity has become accepted  and even promoted in society?   Friedrich Schiller said:  “True art is not intended as a mere passing fancy but rather to make man actually free, and to do so by awakening, exercising and developing within him his power to achieve an objective distance from the sensible world, which otherwise weighs down upon us like a dead object, pressing us like a blind force."  Come celebrate the creativity, brotherhood, and to promote the common aims of mankind.
