Peabody Alumni Featured in Concert Titled “Songs of Self” on March 19

unnamedSongs of Self,” a collaborative concert of self-chosen music by a diverse set of performers, will take place on Sunday, March 19, at 5:00 pm, at the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore. Featured performers include soprano Amanda Williams (MM ’14, GPD ’15, Voice), mezzo-soprano Claire Galloway Weber (MM ’15, Voice), baritone DeCarlo Raspberry, and pianist Joshua Espinoza. The concert will feature the world premiere of pieces by Edmund Scott Miller (MM ’15, Composition, Music Theory Pedagogy), Frances Pollock (MM ’15, Voice), and Andre’ Godsey, as well as pieces by Judith Weir, William Grant Still, and Duke Ellington. “Songs of Self” is a fundraising concert that will support the performers in traveling to Bowling Green, Ohio, for the 2017 New Music Gathering where they will present a panel on diversity in classical music. Admission is free with a suggested donation of $15-$20 that will go directly to funding the group’s travel to the conference.
