Duckwall Artist Series: Mitzi Westra, mezzo-soprano and Greg Martin, piano
Join mezzo-soprano Mitzi Westra and pianist Gregory Martin for an evening of music inspired by the words of women. Robert Schumann’s cycle of songs to words by Mary, Queen of Scots begins the evening, a stark complement to the Romantic master’s earlier exploration of a woman’s life and love. Frank Felice’s Letters to Derrick offers a sometimes plaintive, sometimes whimsical look at the musings of an adolescent girl to a trusted friend. The program concludes with a monumental cycle by Felice’s mentor, Dominick Argento, delving into diary entries of Virginia Woolf, and bringing to light her ferocious intellect and literary acumen.
This performance is free and open to the public, no ticket is required.
Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn by all patrons while in the venue.
