"Loons, lace & Prince: Minnesota is celebrated in song at Minneapolis festival"

REVIEW: Composers from the state were celebrated at Source Song Festival kickoff.

.

Most classical song recitals put just a single singer on the stage. Over the course of a two-hour evening, one might occasionally wish for a little more variety.

.

That wish was lavishly granted Monday evening at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis, as the Source Song Festival kick-started its sixth season. No fewer than 10 singers were featured, with three pianists sharing the accompaniments. In all, 26 songs by 26 composers were sung, all of them living in Minnesota when their songs were written.

.

[...]

.

Billed as “Six Decades of Minnesota Song,” the recital worked chronologically from 1960 to the present, with a set of four or five songs for each decade.

.

[...]

.

Norah Long contributed a coy take on the early Prince song “Baby,” and showed her music theater chops in the macabre “Torch Song” from Chan Poling’s “Glensheen.”
