CHRISTINE JOBSON RECITAL

Originally performed on October 17, 2018.

Christine Jobson, soprano
Jenny Snyder, piano
Sarah Ruff, piano

This recital features the art song compositions of an underperformed and underrepresented group within the realm of classical music: African Americans. African American art songs, as do all art songs, tell a story attached to a melody using traditional classical music compositional techniques. The African American art song is unique in that it represents a fusion of African, American, and European influence. This program is a wonderful introduction to male and female African American composers and the various poets who wrote the texts. Each group of songs in the program represents different aspects of humanity: love, dreams, hope, death, and beauty. The last two songs are Negro spirituals: songs that were birthed from the horrors of slavery imposed upon Africans in America and in this program, arranged for piano and voice.
