Join us for an intimate evening of American song featuring the celebrated works of Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland performed by Palm Beach Opera’s talented Bailey Apprentice Artists.

Palm Beach Opera’s Liederabend is graciously supported by Mr. and Mrs. Peter Hoffman.


Liederabend—which translates to “evening of song”—dates back to the 1800s, when musicians and music lovers would gather at someone’s home, and one or more singers and a pianist would perform popular songs. In the field of classical music, these songs are referred to today as “art songs,” and the German art songs are called “Lieder.” In Germany, the great age of song took place during the 19th century. The rise of German literature, which took place during the Classical and Romantic eras, inspired poetry that sparked the genre known as the “Lied.”
