Live in the Lounge: Words of Women in American Song | January 25
- This event has passed.
Thursday, January 25, 2024 — 7:30 pm
On what would have been Virginia Woolf’s 141st birthday, Los Angeles mezzo soprano Erin Alford and pianist Dr. Clara Cheng perform Words of Women in American Song, an exploration of 20th century, American-composed songs set to the passionate poetry of Emily Dickinson and Edna St. Vincent Millay, as well as deeply personal diary entries of Woolf herself. The concert will feature the Pulitzer Prize-winning From the Diary of Virginia Woolf, an eight-part song cycle inspired by excerpts from the famed author’s diary, written by Dominick Argento in 1974. Alongside this work and others from Bernstein and Copland, are songs from African-American composer Margaret Bonds, most known for magnifying Black voices in spiritual arrangements and collaborations with Langston Hughes.
