Mirror Visions Ensemble will be performing H. LESLIE ADAMS (b. 1932) The Heart of a Woman (2019); for tenor, baritone and piano; text by Georgia Douglas Johnson, as part of its This Land Is Ours concert on January 19, 2020 at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT. The concert will accompany the museum’s Afrocosmologies exhibition.

Mirror Visions Ensemble (MVE) was founded from a desire to explore the relationship between music and text, initially through the creation of “mirror visions” — settings of the same text to music by different composers. The group's passion for storytelling has produced thematic concerts on surprising subjects, based on scholarly research and laced with humor, leading to the revitalization of art song programming.
