Florida Grand Opera (FGO) is pleased to announce another season of “Songfest South Florida,” a concert series performed by members of FGO’s Young Artist Program featuring a variety of classical singing styles.
The FGO Studio Artists present four concerts exploring music written by the contemporaries, teachers, and pupils of the mainstage season composers (Donizetti, Strauss, Gluck, and Cata´n) approaching similar topics with a different point of view. This is an opportunity to explore the extensive art song catalogue while remaining focused on the mainstage offerings—and while discovering the music of composers who may be new to you.
Performances are offered in Coral Gables at the Steinway Piano Gallery, 4104 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33146 and in Fort Lauderdale performances at ArtServe, 1350 East Sunrise Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304.
