There will be a pre-concert reception starting at 6:00pm in the chapel, concert begins at 7:00pm. This all-duet program showcases music written for the female voice by Brahms, Dvorak, Schumann and Mendelssohn and includes selections from Dvorak’s Moravian Duets Op. 20 and 32, all music with texts hinting at the spring that we all hope is just around the corner.
