Richardson Chamber Players

About the Event

Our resident ensemble of Princeton University performance faculty and talented students presents a Sunday-afternoon program of songs with and without words written by female composers on both sides of the Atlantic.  Songs for mezzo-soprano and piano by prolific lieder composer Josephine Lang and for mezzo-soprano and mixed chamber ensemble by Dame Ethel Smyth bookend the program, with works for string quartet, solo piano, and flute, viola, and harp, that reference American, Jamaican, and European song and poetry in between.
