The London Mozart Players have announced their online slate for the next few weeks. For the purposes of this article, our focus will be on vocal or operatic performances.
Soprano Christina Johnson will perform as part of the Saturday Sessions on May 23, 2020.
Baritone Roderick Williams and pianist Lynn Arnold will perform a recital of English song on May 30, 2020. “One of the most frustrating things about lockdown for a collaborative musician is not being able to make music with anyone else. I feel this very deeply as a singer. So the relief of being able to perform something with (but not too near) Lynn Arnold was quite profound. I am a singer and I want to sing. If I don’t sing … then what am I,” he said in a press release.
Other artists featured in the company’s streaming slate through June 12 include violinist Nicola Benedetti, violist Sophie Renshaw, Composer Fiona Brice, violist Meghan Cassidy, Flautist Daisy Noton, cellist Sebastian Comberti, and violinist Vicky Sayles, among many others.
