About Brooklyn Art Song Society:
   The Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its ninth season of first-rate music making in the Fall of 2018, having earned a reputation as one of the preeminent organizations dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music.  Its mission is to preserve art songs direct expressiveness and emotional honesty for todays audience and future generations.

      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. Opera News writes, Brooklyn Art Song Society keeps the intimate recital alive with innovative programming, and the New Yorker praised BASS as invaluable and uncompromisingly dedicated to continuing the traditions of classical art song, both old and new.

   BASSs innovative and ambitious programming has reached thousands of audience members- lifelong classical music and first-time concert-goers alike.  Past programs include performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives and Hugo Wolf, and multi-concert surveys of the art song canon including Britannica, Wien, and La France.  Committed to keeping art song relevant in our time BASS has collaborated closely with and premiered works by important living composers such as Harrison Birtwistle, Tom Cipullo, Michael Djupstrom, Daniel Felsenfeld, Herschel Garfein, Daron Hagen, Jake Heggie, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, David Ludwig, James Matheson, Harold Meltzer, Kurt Rohde, Glen Roven, Andrew Staniland, Scott Wheeler, and Yehudi Wyner,  In May 2015, BASS released its first album, New Voices on Roven Records, which debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard Traditional Classical charts.
 
  Highlights from this season include the five-concert series American Iconoclasts, two world- premiere commissions by acclaimed composers Daniel Felsenfeld and James Mattheson, a presentation of Hugo Wolfs complete Morike-Lieder with legendary pianist Martin Katz, and an artist residency at Ithaca College. In addition to monthly concerts in Brooklyn, BASS has traveled to Philadelphia, Kansas City, Portland, ME, San Francisco, and Seattle and has held residencies at University of Notre Dame, University of California-Davis, and University of Chicago.   Brooklyn Art Song Society is proud to make the Brooklyn Historical Society its primary venue and present a free annual concert at the Brooklyn Public Library. BASSs artist roster features over 40 of the finest young interpreters of art song. For more information visit www.brooklynartsongsociety.org.
