Voices in Dialogue – Benjamin Straley (organ) and Lauren Cook (soprano)

Although at first glance not having a common thread running through it, this program has been chosen to highlight pieces from the solo voice and organ repertoire which work in conversation with one another by virtue of composer or time period or genre.  Special mention may be made that, while the human voice is certainly held as the most expressive of all musical instruments, the organ could at times be characterized as inherently inexpressive, due in part to the production of its tone by steady wind pressures.  Does this evening’s program disprove that notion? We certainly hope so.
