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
