Songs of Travel: Looking for Your Voice

Judith Nicosia (Music)

Using Ralph Vaughan Williams’ "Songs of Travel" cycle as a starting point, students will explore the song literature of composers from Franz Schubert to Libby Larsen. We will look at the poetry they chose and how they demonstrate in song the images of wandering and self-discovery. Along the way, we will experience how the human voice develops in its journey from childhood to adulthood and how changes in the smallest musical instrument influence both how we communicate and where the journey takes us.
