Songs from 100 Years Ago
Thomas Meglioranza, described as “one of America’s finest young baritones,” will sing a collection of American folk tunes from 100 years ago, accompanied by pianist Reiko Uchida.
The program includes an assortment of popular show tunes and parlor songs, including many by Carrie Jacobs Bond (1862-1946), one of the most commercially successful songwriters of her time (her best known hits include “I Love You Truly,” and “A Perfect Day”), a short song cycle by the brilliant modernist composer, Ruth Crawford Seeger (1901-1953), and a selection of songs by Charles Ives (1874-1954). Meglioranza also will talk about the historical context of the songs.
