Hawaii garlands

Jeremy Wong performed Finzi’s “Let us garlands bring,” along with Vaughan Williams’ “Songs of Travel” and a few of the Britten folk song arrangements in a faculty recital at the University of Hawaii at Manoa on January 21st, 2017.
Says Wong “I am so excited to perform Finzi’s amazing song cycle. I am particularly smitten with “Fear no more the heat o’ the sun,” which I think is possibly one of the most powerful songs that I have ever sung. He is able to harness Shakespeare’s incredible power, complex simplicity, and raw emotion perfectly in that one song. It’s truly a pleasure to sing, and I am very much looking forward to present this to an audience that is not as familiar with the music of Finzi, and the other amazing British composers.”
