A Libero Canto Project

Ágról Ágra: from Branch to Branch is a unique and dynamic a cappella program of Hungarian folk songs presented in their traditional forms and as arrangements by contemporary composers Song Yi Jeon, Guillermo Klein, and Libero Canto’s own Marisa Michelson, and Sara Serpa, alongside original songs by Béla Bartók, one of Hungary’s most revered composers and folk song collectors.

Ágról Ágra: from Branch to Branch performers are Kinga Cserjési, Deborah Carmichael, Marisa Michelson, and Margot Bassett Silver.

Ágról Ágra is a project of the Libero Canto School of Singing. Libero Canto™ is a holistic, process-oriented approach to vocal pedagogy originally developed in Hungary in the 1930’s by Lajos Szamosi. Its name comes from “la via al libero canto” (the path to free singing). The Libero Canto Approach helps people to release excess tension and effort, so that they can make music through singing with freedom, honesty, and joy.

Libero Canto is a fiscally sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
