Songs of Love and Loss

Songs of Love and Loss celebrates music’s power to express the inexpressible, including humanity’s deepest, most complex emotions – those of love and death. The Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Peter Askim, will perform music by Wagner, Elgar and Ravel, along with the world premiere of songs by Askim set to texts of 18th century Vietnamese poet Ho Xuan Huong, translated by NC State professor emeritus John Balaban. The orchestra will be joined by guest artist and Department of Music faculty member Jennifer Beattie, mezzo-soprano.
