LUGUBRIOUS PORTRAITURE, or, Art Songs for Those on the Peripheries of Love, is a project I came up with during quarantine to find another outlet to create and collaborate with friends and performers I adore. The result is this 8 part art song series released March through April 2021.
ART SONG; noun, a song written to be sung in recital, typically with piano accompaniment and often set to a poem. (Oxford Languages)
These songs mean a lot to me, and I am beyond thrilled to feature 8 incredible vocalists. They each signed on to this project with no reservations, further impressing and inspiring me with their artistry.
