For their second North American tour, the wonderful British ensemble Voice presents a program of songs exploring the beauty, heartache, and humor of love. The repertoire ranges from the devotional songs of the medieval German abbess Hildegard of Bingen, whose soaring lines express spiritual love and her deep empathy with the natural world and female form to the comedy and melancholy in ballads, sonnets, and catches from Shakespeare’s time. Traditional songs from the British Isles telling stories both bitter and sweet and Voice’s own arrangements and commissions will round out the program.  Love, in all its forms, has inspired human beings for centuries, and it is brought to life through the immediacy and resonance of the human voice—and there are none more beautiful than these three.

In the fall of 2010, when Livingston Taylor played the Silver Center, he brought along one of his Berklee College students to open for him.  He introduced her as “someone you’ll hear a lot more about” in the coming years and no one who was there that night is surprised his prediction has come true for Liz Longely.  Her incredible songwriting abilities feature very personal and emotionally engaging lyrics that have won major national competitions and have been used on television dramas.  Her beautiful, stop-you-in-your-tracks vocals have stunned audiences and garnered fans like John Mayer who calls her music “gorgeous, simply gorgeous.”  She’s played the Newport Folk Festival, done the famous Cayamo Cruises and just released her fourth studio recording.  The Silver Center is happy to welcome Liz back–this time as the headliner.
