Julia Perry

We’re thrilled to celebrate the work of American composer Julia Perry as part of our In Focus series. We’ll be delving into her remarkable life and catalogue of music across a week of performances and talks.

We welcome Professor of Singing Michael Harper to share his research and insight into the life and works of composer Julia Perry followed by a live performance of her solo and chamber works. In 2021, Michael was one of seven researchers awarded a grant by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to celebrate work of ethnically diverse composers from history. Learn more.

Julia Perry Prelude for piano
Julia Perry Stabat Mater for contralto and string quartet

Chiara Lordi piano
