"The New York Festival of Song (NYFOS) was founded in 1988 by its co-artistic directors, Michael Barrett and Steven Blier. With a far-ranging repertoire of art songs, concert works and theater pieces, its thematic recitals have included programs from Brahms to the Beatles, from Russian art song to Argentine tangos, from sixteenth-century lute songs to new music. Over the years, NYFOS has particularly stressed the importance of American song by exploring our country's rich musical traditions," states the organization's website.
