A diverse collection of instrumentalists and vocalists will join together on stage Saturday for a performance of Dvorak’s full cycle of love songs, written in the 1860s after the composer was rejected by one of his piano students. The collection served as inspiration for much of Dvorak’s consequent works. The free event is at 5 p.m. in the Britton Recital Hall.
