The TCU School of Music will welcome Grammy Award-winning composer Libby Larsen as the guest artist for the sixth annual Festival of American Song. Over the course of her more than 40-year career, Larsen has created a catalogue of 500-plus works spanning virtually every genre. Larsen is often sought after for commissions and premieres by major artists, ensembles and orchestras worldwide. As one of the most prolific and most performed living American composers, her music will be the focus of this year’s festival.

  • January 25: TCU voice students will perform as a part of the Cowboy Hats & Crowns concert, inspired by some of Larsen’s best known music that includes compositions inspired by cowboy motifs and operatic work based on letters to King Henry VIII of England from his six wives.
  • January 26: James Rodriguez, TCU School of Music assistant professor of voice and voice pedagogy, will perform Peculiar Case of HH Holmes, a piece for baritone and piano, composed by Larsen in 2009. Following the performance, Larsen will participate in a talkback about the piece.
