Julia Bullock Set for Baltimore Recital Debut

By David Salazar

Soprano Julia Bullock is set to make her Baltimore recital debut on Jan. 14, 2024. The concert kicks off at 5:30 p.m. local time.

The Grammy-nominated artist will appear alongside pianist Bretton Brown in a program at Shriver Hall featuring music by Samuel Barber, Connie Converse, Francis Poulenc, Kurt Weill, Richard Strauss, Alban Berg, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein, Mary Rodgers, Bob Dylan, Antonín Dvořák, Elizabeth Cotten and C. Austin Miles.

“When considering material for this program, the poetry and music that arose all dealt with themes surrounding moments of transformation, or times of extreme change — and either the people and surrounding environment could adjust to and acknowledge those shifts, or not… and the consequences were either ones of acceptance or a lack of it,” Bullock said in an official press statement. “I hope those listening find the program as fun, funny, dramatic, and wildly diverse as I do. I simply can’t wait to share this repertoire with audience members soon!”

Bullock and Brown will present the program as part of a tour that takes them to Schenectady, Philadelphia, and Carnegie Hall. There will be a pre-concert lecture one hour before the show.

Bullock’s “Walking in the Dark” was recently nominated for the 2024 Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Album.
