“A perfect blend of musical poetry and lyrics” wrote Tim Groth , Black Hills Chamber Music Society, about a Lyric Arts Trio performance. Elena Lence Talley, clarinet; Daniel Velicer, piano; and Sarah Tannehill Anderson, soprano, have delighted audiences throughout the Midwest with their technical and artistic abilities and wonderful musicianship. They project a warmth and pleasure in performing concerts crafted around a central theme, complemented by informal remarks about the music that both enlighten and entertain audiences. Look no farther for what Bertie Leigh Compann, Norton (KS) Arts Council, calls, “a concert of exquisite beauty.

Primary Program Description
