Valentine's Day with Brahms and Gershwin

The poignant tale of unrequited love and bittersweet loss provides the context for this concert of Brahms' selected songs and 6 Klavierstücke Op. 118.

In 2012 Sacred Music at Notre Dame received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop sacred music dramas, conceived broadly as opportunities to reflect on important issues in culture and society through a dynamic interaction of the humanities and the arts. Sacred music dramas have appeared in many guises throughout history, and include Greek tragedies, medieval plays and even oratorios and operas. Under the artistic direction of Professor Carmen-Helena Téllez of Sacred Music at Notre Dame, the Interdisciplinary Sacred Music Dramas may be triggered by a preexisting art work, a new commission, or by current issues, but they will be characterized by integration of the arts and the humanities, immersive settings and interactivity with the audience.
