Sunday, Mar. 9, 1 p.m.
Smith Recital Hall
“The Deepest Desire” is a recital program featuring forgotten works of Wolf, Debussy and Barber, as well as Jake Heggie’s song cycle “The Deepest Desire: Four Meditations on Love,” based on texts by social activist Sister Helen Prejean.
Professor Dan Perkins says the texts are Prejean’s response to Heggie’s question about her own sense of spirituality and its meaning. They describe the process of examining the “deepest waters of her being to find the core of her spirituality: the deepest desire of her heart.”
The music is to be performed by PSU faculty Emily Jaworski, mezzo-soprano and Dan Perkins, pianist. Guest artist Donna Shin will perform the flute part for the Heggie song cycle.
