Join IlluminArts and “golden-toned baritone” (NY Times) Jesse Blumberg for Love’s Magic, a mesmerizing musical exploration of the beauty and mystery of love. From the joy of new love to the melancholy of love lost, this program highlights the power that music has to unearth the deepest human emotions.

This program is centered around selections from Ricky Ian Gordon’s Green Sneakers, a song cycle for baritone and string quartet that was written specifically for Jesse Blumberg. In this song cycle, the composer explores the life and love of his late husband, who passed away during the AIDS crisis.

Additional highlights include works by Clara and Robert Schumann, arranged for string quartet and voice, as well as music from Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Astor Piazzolla, Florence Price, and more.

Join us on either May 16, 2024 at Sanctuary for the Arts in Coral Gables, or May 17, 2024 at St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Pompano Beach.
