News to start your week!

ICYMI we are celebrating the 130th birthday of Rebecca Carke!  Read more about Clarke’s life, music, and legacy here – or at The Rebecca Clarke Society!

The reviews are in from the City of Birmingham’s performance at the BBC Proms, and The Guardian called the performance, led by Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, “spellbinding” and “bewitching”. Read the review here – and listen to the performance online here.

Composer Sally Beamish has a fabulous piece in The Guardian describing her early years as a musician and composer – and the inspiration for a new work being premiered today at the Proms.  Read the full piece here – you won’t be sorry!

And the Huffington Post has an article by New England Conservatory faculty member and singer Cristi Catt.  She writes about Hildegard von Bingen’s Ordo Virtutum and how her study of the work has opened up opportunities around the world.  Read her piece here.
