Despite and still

24 October 2024, 1:00pm - 2:00pm

The American soprano Heidi Stober enjoys a glittering career in concert and opera on both sides of the Atlantic. She sang the title role in Garsington Opera’s 2017 production of Handel’s Semele, when The Guardian enjoyed her ‘creamy tone and gleaming high notes’. With the acclaimed American pianist Tanya Blaich, she performs a programme inspired by Samuel Barber’s song ‘Despite and Still’, exploring tenacity and resilience in navigating life’s challenges. Alongside music by Barber, the artists have chosen a range of captivating songs by Elisabeth Lutyens, Maude Valérie White, Ethel Smyth, Germaine Tailleferre, Margaret Bonds and Florence Price.
