WHAT IS ART SONG?
Karen Fitz-Gibbon sang with Alan Hicks for Art Song Canberra on 1st June 2014. As a semi-finalist in the 2014 Mietta Song Competition (she became a finalist), Karen made a short video about the nature of art song. The video tackles common objections to classical singing and is engaging viewing for anyone with an interest in music. To watch the video, click here.
Elly Ameling is one of the greats of art song. She produced an excellent series of videos “Some Thoughts on the Heart of Art Song” which can be accessed here.
