About This Performance

Note: This concert was to replace the originally scheduled program with Fleur Barron and Eric Owens.

Lauded as a “charismatic star” by the Boston Globe, Fleur Barron makes her PCMS debut with a pianist near and dear to the Society in Julius Drake. The British-Singaporean mezzo has put together an evening of songs that speak to her and her heritage in a very personal way and that concludes with a special guest artist collaboration. Cellist Thapelo Masita is completing his studies at Juilliard and appears as part of MOMENTUM: Our Future, Now, an initiative driven by leading international artists supporting younger professional colleagues in the first substantial phase of their career.
