In conjunction with its Center-funded project Emerging Voices: Art Song and Social Connection, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society (PCMS) presents a panel discussion featuring project curator and tenor vocalist Nicholas Phan, The New Yorker music journalist Alex Ross, and poet and scholar Susan Stewart to explore the role of poets and composers in communicating the human experience and fostering empathy between people.

The event is free with registration.

Emerging Voices illustrates how the art song form, with its intersection of poetry and music, remains a powerful vehicle for social exchange.
