Visiting Performers to Feature University Alumnus

The Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall.

The recital will feature University alumnus Dominic Armstrong (’02), along with pianist Michael Brofman.

Currently in its sixth season of first-rate music making, BASS has earned a reputation as one of the preeminent organizations dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music. The New York Times called BASS “a company well worth watching” and Voce di Meche hailed, “as long as BASS is around we do not need to worry about the future of art song in the USA.” BASS’s innovative programming is epic in scope yet presented in intimate settings.  

The program being presented is part of “Britannica,” an all-encompassing survey of British song that captures the vast English cultural heritage, from Dowland to Birtwistle, Shakespeare to Auden. For more on BASS or “Britannica,” visit

Truman’s Department of Music is sponsoring the performance, which is free and open to the public.
