Songs and Serenades
Graham Christian (piano) and Libby Maxey (soprano) have been performing "Songs and Serenades" concerts in the Amherst area since 2014. In the tradition of the salon, they bring art songs and the occasional aria to intimate spaces. Recent programs have included both well-loved and also little-known pieces: selections from Jane Austen's personal music books, a sampling from Jenny Lind's repertoire, and Cleopatra's arias from Handel's Giulio Cesare in Egitto. Their program for the Amherst Women's Club, a French tapestry with a few Spanish flourishes, will include works by Debussy, Hahn, Viardot, Poulenc, Rodrigo and others.
All proceeds of the event will be used to grant scholarships to high school seniors and grants to local community service agencies such as the Boys and Girls Club, the Amherst Senior Center, Safe Passage and the Amherst Survival Center.
