and songs by Tom Lehrer

In this first of two informal Friday evening song recitals this season, meditations on life and death are set amongst irreverent and entertaining tones. The philosophical ruminations of Barber and Ives are paired with songs from Christopher Fox and Lehrer written in a deceptively frothy cabaret-style but underpinned by a hint of bitterness. The theatrical performance of these pieces moves a seemingly harmless recital into something more unsettling and beautiful.
