Hope and Healing, a UWM voice faculty recital, aims to address the topic of “loss” as it surfaces in our lives in many forms in order to promote greater empathy for and support of one another and as we all grieve and heal from a global COVID pandemic, continued racial inequality, and the personal traumas of our own individual lives. The recital will feature music from classical and music theatre repertoire and will include a world premiere song cycle by James Daley entitled Songs for Andy as well as the world premiere mini-opera Ready (or Not) by Ruben Piirainen. It is our hope that as our world is physically able to come together once again, we can also come together on a deeper emotional level of connection and understanding to step forward together and rebuild a safer and stronger society.
