Founders performs at Pittsburg Univeristy in Kansas

In the same way that Schubert’s Winterreise song cycle was written for tenor voice as the disheartened lover, Founders will be featuring tenor Ben Russell in this evenings song cycle about the cold bitter loss of sanity and love. In addition to pieces from Founders debut album, which range from Appalachian Folk originals to classically modernized Radiohead covers, the program will also include a premiere from the ensemble, which utilizes text from a poem by Wilhelm Müller also found in Winterreise.
