    For over a century, the famous volume 24 Italian Art Songs and Arias has introduced millions of young singers to Italian music and has been a staple of solo & ensemble contests around the nation. In the same manner as TEMP’s educational outreach program to Austin-area schools, our concert presents an authentic performance from this enduring and beautiful vocal literature. With six of TEMP’s finest soloists and a small continuo group.

    “I am, therefore I complain.” Humans have always had things to complain about, ranging from life-threatening, quality-of-life issues to conjured or superficial annoyances that simply don’t fit into the notion of what a good day should hold. Our musical exploration will portray the timelessness of humanity’s grumping from medieval times to the present day. With guest Ryland Angel (countertenor), and more!
