Vox Grata Women's Choir has an upcoming spring concert featuring music from Central and Eastern Europe. Among other pieces, they'll be singing a set of songs by Rachmaninoff as translated into English by a pair of Nashvillians. Mark Herman and Ronnie Apter came to explain how they craft singable lyrics that sound good while also keeping the intended meaning intact. And, of course, the choir gave us a taste of the final product, accompanied by pianist John Semingson.
Vox Grata will perform in concert Thursday, May 19th at Westminster Presw.
