Jenna Richards wrote the following about this program: ’Beth and I have been playing together for about seven years. We both enjoyed sight reading and researching new works, and have always searched for “hidden gems” that may not be well-known to our audiences. After a few years, we started experimenting with vocal music, and soon discovered that our audiences loved hearing art songs on the cello. We developed this program, which is comprised almost entirely of piano-vocal works, over the last couple years, adding to our own repertoire and bringing art songs to audiences in a new form. We hope you will enjoy this deviation from tradition as much as we do.’
