Join tenor Nicholas Phan (“on a career roll,” New York Times), violinist Anthony Marwood (“thrilling,” Sunday Times), and pianist Inon Barnatan (“extraordinary,” New York Times) for a program of folk songs (including “Greensleeves”) and accompanying instrumental music that explores music’s ability to carry us back home.

Reza Vali: Two Persian Folk Songs for Cello and Piano
Vaughan Williams: arr. Folk Song: How Cold the Wind Doth Blow (tenor/violin/piano)
