An English Songbook
A RECITAL WITH ROWAN PIERCE & CHRISTOPHER GLYNN
PBO presents an evening of English song spanning the 17th to 20th centuries, with music by Purcell, Howells, William Walton, Sir Richard Rodney Bennet and Karl Jenkins. From the fresh blossom of spring to dreams, dances and flowers, and ending in some twilight delights, this program is sure to enchant and entrance. We are thrilled to welcome the Grammy Award-winning pianist and artistic director of the UK’s Ryedale Festival Christopher Glynn and rising star Rowan Pierce.
