Florestan toasts its final year of residency at Dickinson College with a four-day feast of contemporary American songs. Together with composer Libby Larsen and other guest artists, Florestan will explore the myriad styles and influences that shape todayís American song repertoire, and celebrate the collaborations between performers, poets, and composers that drive its evolution.

The festival will feature world premieres of five song cycles, four of which were commissioned by Florestan. Each evening concert will include selected songs from Robert Schumannís Myrthen lieder, opus 25. Schumann is not only the inspiration behind Florestan Recital Projectís name and mission, he has also inspired generations of song composers, including all four of the commissioned composers in this festival.
