PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Kassia: Women in Song will perform Folk Songs of The World at the First Unitarian Society of Madison, 900 University Bay Drive, Madison, Wis., on Friday, April 5 at 12:15 p.m.

Kassia: Women in Song will perform many different folk songs from Greece, France, Ireland, the British Isles, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic and Austria, Spain, and in collaboration with the UW-Platteville Confucius Institute, folk songs from China.

“Our collaboration offers an outreach with the Chinese culture and music from many different cultures as well as highlights both the diverse offerings found in UW-Platteville’s Performing and Visual Arts Department and Confucius Institute,” said Susan Savage Day, UW-Platteville assistant professor of voice, vocal pedagogy and musical theatre.

Singing soprano will be Day, Rebekah Demaree, UW-Platteville lecturer in music, and Xianghau Han, UW-Platteville Confucius Institute instructor. Megan Whiteman, senior music major from Dubuque, Iowa, will be playing flute. Sharon Jensen will accompany on the piano.

“Folk Songs of the World is a delightful and remarkable performance of folk and art songs that not only represent language, but also culture, poetry and sounds from a wide range of countries,” said Marian Maciej-Hiner, director of the UW-Platteville Confucius Institute. “This recital demonstrates the power of music, and how music unites people across the globe.”

This recital is supported by the UW-Platteville Confucius Institute, the Mary and Isabel Cunningham Fund, the Margaret Keizer Fund and the Lyle and Ruth Olson Fund.

The group will perform Kassia: Women in Song again Wednesday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the University of Dubuque in the Performing Arts and Campus Center.
