Join famed Sacramento soprano Susheel Bibbs for an afternoon of art songs inspired by works in the Crocker’s permanent collection. Built around the theme of “Songs of Love and Parting,” Bibbs will be accompanied by baritone Omari Tau and pianist John Cozza, for a program filled with heartfelt emotion and incredible talent. Known for her theatricality as well as her scholarship, Bibbs has created a program to include works by Debussy, Schumann, Gershwin, and more.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of works in the Crocker's permanent collection from the three centuries featured in the concert - 18th, 19th, and 20th, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
