Love Songs and Waltzes

Six Degree Singers, Artistic Director Rachel Carlson, and Assistant Artistic Director Katelyn Aungst invite you to our next concert series, “Love Songs and Waltzes.” We’ll be exploring romance in music through all of history, covering renaissance madrigals by Dowland and Gesualdo, a musical theater favorite from Camelot and modern classics like Willie Nelson’s “Sad Songs and Waltzes” (arranged by one of our own choir members!) to name only a few. The main feature will be Brahms’s beloved Liebeslieder Waltzes for 4-hand piano and choir. There is something for everyone in this exciting program and we hope to see you there!

General Admission: $15 online pre-order/ $20 on performance day
Students w/ ID and Seniors over 65: $12 online pre-order/ $15 on performance day
