The mission of the Society for American Art song is to educate the public regarding the beauty and significance of America’s classical art song heritage through concerts and lectures; and through the performance, composition and conservation of American art song by commissioning new works and providing access to existing works.
The Society uses this Web site to promote American art song by serving three groups: 1) singers, teachers and performers; 2) American composers; and 3) researchers. The site is designed to help singers and teachers explore and develop a repertoire of songs by American composers, based on the composer, the author of the text, or song topic (humor, death, love, the seasons, to name a few). For performers, the site provides a place to publicize past and future performances. The site gives emerging and established American composers a place to make themselves known to their key public -- singers and teachers. Lastly, the site provides a place for researchers to begin learning more about American art song, and also to publish the results of their work.
