  • Julia Bullock soprano
  • Bretton Brown piano

In the words of the New York Times, the singer and activist is ‘an impressive, fast-rising soprano … poised for a significant career’, while for San Francisco Classical Voice she sings ‘with a moving, mounting urgency set deep in the timbre of her lustrous voice and dramatic phrasing’. Her programme offers a characteristically stimulating mix covering a huge range of musical and poetic territories.
