Mezzo-soprano Marion Newman, Norway’s Nordic Voices, pianist Jamie Parker, and a Trio of TSM Mentors present a tapestry of vocal and instrumental music.

With origins in ancient Kyiv, Ukrainian dumky epic ballads served as the inspiration for Dvořák’s rhapsodic piano trio. Powerful messages captured and transported in music help us understand the complexity of our times and provide a means by which to convey comfort, joy, sorrow, and wisdom to those that follow in our steps.
