Rush Dorsett, soprano
Sanctuary | Livestreamed
Songs of Love Through the Ages

Soprano Rush Dorsett guides listeners on a journey of both great classical arias as well as Broadway and contemporary songs to explore the ageless theme of love through varied lenses of culture, language, genre and time period. Each selection illuminates a piece of the common thread that unites them all.
Pianist: Kirsten Homdrom
