Annual Lecture/Recital Program featuring Antonin Dvorak scholar David Beveridge and a vocal music performance. Dr. Beveridge has chosen one of his most striking discoveries during his decades of research in all aspects of Dvorak’s life and work, namely the amazing quantity and stunning beauty of his vocal music–operas, choral works, duets, and songs–and the peculiar circumstances that have caused music historians to underrate most of this music and performers to neglect it.
