• A concert titled ‘Craigslistlieder and Other Love Songs’ will be presented at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, at Poquatuck Hall in Orient.

Pianist Steven Blier will be joined by soprano Chelsea Morris, mezzo soprano Lauren Eberwein, tenor William Goforth and bass Theo Hoffman. Their program will include solos and quartets by Granados, Grieg, Frank Bridge, Stephen Sondheim, Stenhammar, Gabriel Kahane and Smokey Robinson.

The concert, presented by Oysterponds Community Activities, is part of the Poquatuck Hall Concert Series, produced and directed by Jane Smith. It’s also part of the New York Festival of Song’s Emerging Artist Series.

According to the New York Festival of Song’s website, the series began in 1988, organized by Mr. Blier and his fellow Manhattan-based pianist Michael Barrett. The aim was to share unusual and rarely heard songs. The NYFOS motto is “No song is safe from us.”

Tickets are $20. Reserve in advance by calling Ms. Smith at 323-1378. Tickets will also be sold at the door (cash only). Visit nyfos.org/Orient for more information.
