Lee University's Collaborative Piano Ensemble presents Liederabend (An Evening of Songs) created by Dr. ChoEun Lee, ensemble director.

"When I programmed this Liederabend, I thought it would be fascinating to feature one poem that is written in three different settings by three composers to show diverse perspectives," says Lee.

The performance will feature "Will there really be a morning?" by Emily Dickinson, with arrangements composed by Lori Laitman, Richard Hundley and Andre Previn.

Playing will be piano students Eunseo Kim, Xinyu Lin and Michaela Moore, with singers Libby Clark, Gabrielle Flannery, Cecilia Fornuto and John Mburu.
