Grammy winning soprano and UC San Diego Professor of Music Susan Narucki presents how singing drives -- and is driven by -- a need to communicate and understand the human experience. She demonstrates, through singing, the possibilities of the unique fusion of word, sound and meaning that is integral to Western Art Music. Narucki's lecture is the fifth in the series, "To Be Musical," sponsored by Eleanor Roosevelt College at UC San Diego.
SummerFest continues its tradition of presenting works by contemporary composers, with world premieres by two Pulitzer Prize-winning American composers: Steven Stucky and John Harbison. The program also features a seminal work by Hungarian composer Bela Bartok, the Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, and Antonin Dvorak's popular Piano Trio No. 4 in E Minor.
