was founded in the Spring of 2005 to inspire the revival of
Art Song in the North Texas region. Our mission is twofold: to
sustain the art of the song recital via professional concerts
and events and to promote the development of young emerging
artists in this special repertoire through workshops and
targeted recital opportunities.
THE RECITAL SERIES:
Each season, Voces Intimae offers a series of exciting
recitals with professional singers and pianists from
throughout the Metroplex and further afield. Program themes
are carefully designed to be stimulating, provocative and
entertaining. We explore poets and composers from around the
world, in songs from every era of the vocal art even into
music of our time.
During an annual workshop weekend, esteemed clinicians will
delve into a particular topic of focus to develop young
singers and pianists studying at Texas universities and
schools of music. Events during the workshop include a faculty
recital, roundtables, interdisciplinary talks, and a series of
master classes designed to bring out the potential in each
participant. The weekend culminates in a celebratory recital
featuring all participants.
