Music at Bunker Hill presents a Vocal Chamber Music Concert featuring Lucy Fitz Gibbon and Friends

(SEWELL, NJ) -- Music at Bunker Hill presents a Vocal Chamber Music Concert featuring Soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon and Friends on Sunday, May 26, 2024 at Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church (330 Greentree Road) in Sewell. Showtime is 3:00pm.

Praised for her “dazzling, virtuoso singing” (Boston Globe), soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon believes that creating new works and recreating those lost in centuries past makes room for the multiplicity of voices integral to classical music’s future. As such, Ms. Fitz Gibbon has given U.S. premieres of rediscovered works from the Baroque through the mid-20th century, including recording seminal Yiddish song cycles. She has also collaborated with notable composers of her own time, among them John Harbison, Kate Soper, Katherine Balch, Reena Esmail, Tan Dun, and Pauline Oliveros.

Tickets are $5 for students with ID and $28 for adults and seniors. Tickets and donations may be made online.

Lucy Fitz Gibbon has appeared as a soloist with orchestras including the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra; Tafelmusik; the Naples Philharmonic; the Albany, Eureka, Lexington, Richmond, and Tulsa Symphonies; and the American Symphony Orchestra in her Carnegie Hall debut. In the 23-24 season, she appears in performances of major works by Johannes Brahms, Arnold Schoenberg, Unsuk Chin, and György Kurtág in venues throughout North America.

Violist William Frampton has been praised by critics for his “impressive” performances (The New York Times) and “a glowing amber tone” (The Boston Globe). Since his New York recital debut in 2009 at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, William has enjoyed a career of performances around the world as a chamber musician, soloist, and orchestral player. Highlights include over 100 performances with a string quartet led by Midori Goto in tours of Asia and North America, appearances as guest artist with Escher Quartet and Johannes Quartet, and world premieres of chamber music by J. Mark Stambaugh and a concerto by Peter Homans. William is Principal Viola of American Symphony Orchestra, Associate Musician with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and member of Harlem Chamber Players String Quartet. He performs in the Broadway orchestras of Hamilton, Wicked, and The Lion King, and on film scores including The Joker, West Side Story, The Greatest Showman, The Girl on the Train, the Barbie Movie, and many others.William is Artistic Director of Music at Bunker Hill. He has performed at festivals including Bard Summerscape, Verbier, and IMS Prussia Cove, and as soloist with conductors including Joseph Silverstein and David Hoose. He holds degrees from New England Conservatory and the Juilliard School, and studied with Kim Kashkashian, Samuel Rhodes, Choong-Jin Chang, and Byrnina Socolofsky. William teaches viola and chamber music at The College of New Jersey.

Hailed by the press for his “bold, rich sound” (Strad Magazine) and “nuanced musicianship,” (The New York Times), Grammy-nominated Israeli cellist Michael Katz has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician across North America, Europe, and Asia. His musicianship has been recognized with many awards, among them all three prizes at the 2011 Aviv Competition, and first prizes at the Juilliard School’s 2010 Concerto Competition and the 2005 Turjeman Competition.

Bradley Brookshire is an Assistant Conductor at the Metropolitan Opera, where he has played harpsichord in a number of productions. At New York City Opera, he was assistant conductor and harpsichordist for Christopher Alden’s staging of Cosí. He also worked for many years at Glimmerglass Opera. Besides his operatic work, he has regularly performed with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Trinity Wall St. Baroque Orchestra, among others. Anthony Tommasini, writing in the New York Times praised his “fleet, imaginative, and probing performances” in a “challenging and important series of recitals devoted to the complete harpsichord works of Bach.” James Oesterich (NYT) noted his "wonderful musicality, personality, and wit.”

This program is made possible in part by funding from The Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission at Rowan College of South Jersey, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional funding is provided by South Jersey Charitable Foundation and The Presser Foundation.

Founded in 2008, Music at Bunker Hill brings great performers to the heart of southern New Jersey, enhancing the cultural life of their community by preserving the tradition of classical music while exploring other musical genres. With outreach concerts in schools and libraries, their artists inspire the next generation with their passion for the arts and standards of excellence. Their goal is to make great music affordable, accessible, and appealing to as many people as possible.
