LIEDER ALIVE! is the only organization of its kind in America that is so thoroughly devoted to the performance, training, and appreciation of German Lieder. Our principal program is the Liederabend Series, which was inaugurated in 2012 and offers recitals by some of the most accomplished singers in the region and around the world. In 2013, as part of this series, LIEDER ALIVE! launched the Neue Lieder Commissioning Program, bringing the marriage of German Romantic poetry and music into the 21st Century. LIEDER ALIVE! was founded by Maxine Bernstein in 2007; programming was initiated the following year with a Vocal Master Workshop series that has included master classes by baritone Thomas Hampson, mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne, soprano June Anderson, and baritone Håkan Hagegård. Since then, our educational programming has expanded to include The Lieder Institute, directed by Master Coach John Parr (Head of Music Staff at Deutsche Oper Berlin); “Bringing Lieder to Life!,” aimed at novice and experienced singers alike; and year-round artistic consultations by Ms. Bernstein. LIEDER ALIVE! is dedicated to keeping Lieder where it belongs—alive!
