Performances and Featured Artists:

However, here are a few performers that might catch your interest: Jeremy Denk (piano), Nathan Gunn (baritone), Sasha Cooke (mezzo-soprano), and Dawn Upshaw (soprano). You'll hear works by Beethoven, Bach, Haydn, Bernstein, Schumann, Mozart, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Elgar, Rossini... the list just keeps on going... Shostakovich, Brahms, Dvorak, Wagner, Strauss, and many many more (just to name a few).
