Soprano Tony Arnold joins pianist Alison d'Amato and flutist Bonita Boyd in a song recital in Kilbourn Hall at the Eastman School of Music on Sunday, September 7th, at 3 pm. Curated by David Liptak, the program presents Twilight Butterfly (2013) by Augusta Read Thomas, Five Lyrics of Louise Bogan (1977) by Warren Benson, Two Poems of Agueda Pizarro (1980) by Joseph Schwantner, and the premiere performance of Dove Songs (2014) by David Liptak, using poetry by Rita Dove.

The Chicago Tribune writes, “anything sung by soprano Tony Arnold is worth hearing.” Hailed by the New York Times as “a bold, powerful interpreter,” she is recognized internationally as a leading proponent of new music in concert and recording, praised for her sparkling and insightful performances of the most daunting contemporary scores.
