Words capture love and romance so very well. But what of music, that “language of the
emotions” that doesn’t rely on words to convey? Join the members of Ancora for the finale to
their Sweet 16 Anniversary season as they present Spring Romances. Delight in a program
of classic romantic choral songs by Brahms, Dvořák, and Schumann, whose music was
infused with passion, strength, longing, and tenderness. Perfect for a spring day!

Six Romances, Op. 69 – by Robert Schumann
Moravian Duets, Op. 32 - by Antonin Dvořák
