Cecilia Concert has announced a free online concert featuring celebrated coloratura soprano Jane Archibald and award-winning pianist Jennifer King.

Exploring themes of distancing and intimacy through refrains on heritage, solitude, nature, and time, the concert was recorded during the summer of 2020 in an empty Lilian Piercey Concert Hall in Halifax.

The four-part program includes works by Robbie Burns, Samuel Barber, Richard Strauss, Derek Charke, and Charles Gounod.

Archibald’s career has taken her from Toronto to San Francisco to the Vienna State Opera and most opera houses in between. The Halifax-based artist is a star of the Canadian Opera Company and the Metropolitan Opera.

Also from Halifax, King can often be found collaborating with other classical music artists, recording and touring as a soloist, and working on multidisciplinary projects.

The free recital can be viewed online until January 26. Visit ceciliaconcerts.ca for more information.
