Skylark presents a new commission from composer Nell Shaw Cohen.

A love letter to wanderlust, this World Premiere commission weaves together art songs, choral music, and literature into an expansive cantata on the theme of walking. Influences from rock, folk, and musical theater shine in a lyrical and evocative score by composer/librettist Nell Shaw Cohen (It’s a Long Way, Transform the World with Beauty), marrying Skylark’s voices with an instrumental quartet. From Walt Whitman to the present day, Sauntering Songs celebrates diverse characters who search for freedom and fulfillment through subversive journeys on foot.

There will be a pre-concert talk 45 minutes prior to each concert.

Tickets: $20-75
