Piano and Soprano Duo Perform Music of Longing and Belonging

Event Date: 
October 6, 2017 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Pianist Eliza Garth and soprano Betsy Bates explore the profound tension between foreignness and inclusion on Friday, October 6, at 8:00 pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis (UUCA). Bates, a Korean-American adoptee, and Garth, an adoptive mother of children from Korea and China, feature works from Puccini to Cage as outsiders of the Asian cultures to which they are linked.

Garth is distinguished in U.S., Europe, and Asia through recordings and concerts, having performed over 200 new works, many written for her, such as Wheeler’s Gradualia and Goldstein’s Of Points Fixed and Fluid. Her solo CD Tour de Force releases in 2017–18.

Soprano Betsy Bates, St. Mary's College of Maryland and The Peabody Institute, is a professional cantor, music minister, and chorister in Maryland, D.C., Virginia, and New York and serves as director of marketing and operations for Children’s Chorus of Washington and director of marketing and development for the St. Louis Church Concert Series.

Intimate chamber setting, family-friendly, profound music.

Tickets: $15 single or Friday Five Pack for $60

The October 6 concert is part of a continuing monthly series at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, now offered on first Fridays. The next concert will feature artistic director for the series, pianist Brian Ganz, appearing with the Alan Saucedo String Trio on Friday, November 3, at 8 pm.
