Award-winning opera diva and Bard Conservatory Vocal Arts Program alumna Julia Bullock MM ’11 talks with host Lara Downes on Amplify, a series highlighting visionary Black musicians who are shaping the art form. In this intimate conversation, Bullock and Downes share common ground. “Our search for self has informed our navigation of the classical music landscape,” says Downes, “driven by a desire to reveal the voices of artists of color who came before us, and to build a more diverse and equitable future for those who will come after. Julia's choices—the music she sings, the places where she sings it and the people she sings it for—are deliberate and courageous.”
Wosner will begin his residency by taking part in the 121st season of the revered Peoples’ Symphony Concerts, which offers performances by some of the best artists in the world for as little as $8.33 a concert. Following an opening night performance with the Dover String Quartet on November 15, Wosner will curate and perform in a two-concert Schubertiade on the weekend of the composer's birthday (January 31). Described as a “Schubertian of unfaltering authority and character” by Gramophone, Wosner conceived these programs as part of a four-recital Schubert series that he is curating for the Bard College Conservatory of Music, where he is on the faculty.
