Divine fires do not blaze each day, but an artist functions in their afterglow hoping for their recurrence.

This concert, on the 100th anniversary of Ned Rorem’s birth, celebrates the music and words of one of America’s greatest song composers. Rorem not only changed the course of American song, he was also a prolific diarist and a pioneer of gay rights. Singers from the Vocal & Operatic Studies Department will explore the output of one of America’s most original creative voices.

Running time is approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
