Thank you to our Director, Eric Krönke and our Collaborative Accompanist, Mary Jane Austin, for everything they do and for their patience as we polished our German pronunciation! A special thanks to Mary Jane for doing double duty in several rehearsals. Erik and Mary Jane are a superb team and we are happy to be learning from them.
Thank you to all of our singers, for your hard work, good humor, camaraderie, and perseverance. We look forward to singing together again in our fall term!

A selection of Liebeslieder Waltzer (Lovesong Waltzes) by Johannes Brahms, Op. 52 (performed in German):
Rede, Mädchen (Answer, Maiden)
Am Gesteine rauscht die Flut (Deep in thunder roars the tide)
Die Grüne Hopfenranke (The tender hopvine wanders)
Ein kleiner, hübscher Vogel (There was a tiny, pretty bird)
Wenn so lind dein Auge mir (When your eyes so fondly seek)
Am Donaustrande (On Danube’s border)
O wie sanft die Quelle (Oh, how calm the river flows)
Nein, es ist nicht auszukommen (No, I will not listen to them)
Schlosser auf, und mache Schlösser (Locksmith, go and bring me padlocks)
Nachtigall, sie singt so schön (Nightingale, you sing so sweet)
Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe (My love is a well)
Es bebet das Gesträuche (Each tender leaf is trembling)
Selections from Frostiana, words by Robert Frost, music by Randall Thompson:
