Deux Saisons presents, Spanish & American Songs
 
A modern take on a classic duo, the award-winning Deux Saisons is known for presenting concerts with a diverse collection of classical repertoire. Featuring soprano Keri Lee Pierson and classical guitarist Christopher Schoelen, this voice and guitar duo presents programs that engage and entertain all ages. Their repertoire includes works that range from old to new, harmonic to dissonant, rhythmic to melodic. Deux Saisons (French for “two seasons”) brings classical music to a wide community by integrating it into any venue (such as breweries, stages, and farms), and using it as a tool for education and restoration.
 
At this event, Deux Saisons will be celebrating St. Augustine’s dual heritage with music by Spanish and American composers. One of the most accessible and on-going traditions in music, songs present poetry set to melody. Dating back to the Middle Ages, the common form of “Art Songs” (or Lied) was made popular by German composers of the Classical era. A favorite style for folk bands, Renaissance ensembles, and more, this concert will highlight classical art songs in Spanish and English. There will be a premier from the American composer Bonnie McLarty, as well as the music of David Leisner, Fernando Sor, Heitor Villa-Lobos and the ever popular Siete canciones populares españolas by Manuel de Falla.
