Composer/lyricists Martin Hennessy and Rachel Peters recently had the good fortune to be programmed on the same concert. Over the course of a single day they started as strangers and parted as friends knowing each other’s entire life stories, and an electric collaboration was born. Tonight, they will premiere several new songs they wrote together and share some additional favorites from before they teamed up. Equal parts highbrow gravitas and lowbrow absurdity, their songs are sure to delight lovers of art song, opera, musical theatre, and cabaret equally.
with Meredith Lustig, soprano; Kyle Oliver, baritone; Alden Terry, cello
