Downtown Music is delighted to welcome Gilda Lyons for her Downtown Music debut! Lyons, a composer and vocalist who is a fierce advocate of contemporary music, has commissioned and premiered new works by dozens of composers. Of her performance in Daron Hagen’s “Shining Brow” (Buffalo Philharmonic/Falletta) (Naxos) David Shengold of Opera, UK writes “Gilda Lyons’ clear soprano compels admiration.” She is joined at the piano by Daron Hagen, one of America’s most prominent, prolific, and respected composers. All eight of his major operas are currently in production or revival throughout the U.S., Europe, or Asia. The program includes music of Blitzstein, Brel, Hagen, Lyons, Sondheim and Weill.
Help us finish our twenty-seventh season on a “high note” and join us for this outstanding performance of world class music!
