The blurred Line of 21st Century Song

The blurred Line of 21st Century Song

While studying composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, I saw a very special “senior recital” towards the end of Spring semester 2015. The recital was given by tenor Sam Grosby, and the concert was pretty standard for an Eastman recital—it contained some Beethoven, some Rachmaninoff, etc., the essential repertoire for any operatic vocalist wishing to graduate with a degree.
