To begin the Heritage Singers’ concert, guest soloist and voice instructor Cindy Moeller will perform “Les filles de Cadix” by Pauline Viardot and “Les chemins de l’amour” by Francis Poulenc, French art songs that capture the playful, romantic style of 19th-century music. She will also perform Emily Dickinson’s poem “Will There Really Be a Morning?” and Langston Hughes’ “A Horse With Wings,” both set to music by contemporary composer Ricky Ian Gordon.

The Heritage Singers’ performance will include “May It Be,” the powerful elven melody from “Lord of the Rings”; “Till There Was You,” a contemporary jazz version of the well-known song from “The Music Man”; and Eric Whitacre’s “Animal Crackers,” selections set to the words of six poems by American poet Ogden Nash.
