As mentioned in my review of his recital at the Library of Congress last December, Thomas Hampson is partnering with the Library of Congress in a project called Song of America. Through materials and recordings on the World Wide Web and a tour of performances across the United States (starting on November 12 -- this Saturday -- in Overland Park, Kansas), Hampson hopes to bring the largely forgotten legacy of American art song back to his fellow citizens. We would love to hear about these concerts from any of our readers who may attend them, out there in the hinterland.
