In a Persian Garden: The Life of Liza Lehmann

  • University Church 5655 South University Avenue Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

The Unveiled Voices Project presents two concerts featuring In a Persian Garden, a song cycle by Edwardian composer Liza Lehmann. The Song-Cycle for Soprano, Contralto, Tenor and Bass with Pianoforte Accompaniment features singers Carl Alexander, Matthew Truss, Henry Pleas III, Vince Wallace and pianist Charles Thomas Hayes. The production is enriched by some of Lehmann's own narrative from her 1919 memoir. The composer’s own words are performed by Megan Wells, a nationally award winning actress with a portfolio of work portraying fascinating women, including those with a close relationship to classical music.
