Bridget Kibbey in Recital

December 5, 2019, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

This “Yo-Yo Ma of the harp” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) is lauded for her compelling artistry and virtuosity. With fingers that move deftly through works by Bach and Britten as well as newly-commissioned works by contemporary composers, Kibbey has earned a reputation for showcasing the broad range of the harp through multi-genre performances. As The New York Times raved, Kibbey “…makes it seem as though the instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the energetic figures and gorgeous colors she was getting from it.” Kibbey’s program in the Mansion celebrates composers like Cuba’s Paquito d’Rivera who has immigrated to the United States—weaving their native music into the rich American tapestry.
