    Electricity: Songs from the Time of Tiffany 

    At the turn of the 20th century, America was coursing with electricity—both literally and figuratively. As an artist, designer, and entrepreneur, Louis Comfort Tiffany harnessed the current of the age to produce beautiful, functional objects for an aspiring American bourgeoisie. To pay tribute to the man, his age, and Evergreen's extensive art glass collection, the engaging trio of Michael Lasser (narrator), Cindy Miller (vocals), and Alan Jones (piano/vocals) will perform tunes from the Great American Songbook in a concert charting the dominant themes of Tiffany's era, from electrification and automation to suburbanization and female liberation.
