Lorina Gore Soprano
Alan Hicks Piano

“Programming a recital exploring longing and desire is easy for a soprano – so much of the music written for voice is dedicated to these bittersweet human experiences.

“Folk and art songs have always found ways to communicate, with beauty and poignancy, our universal need to love and to be loved.”

– Lorina Gore, Artist in Focus
