Eliza Garth

the enchanted piano

Widely regarded as an artist with a passionate voice and an adventurous spirit, pianist ELIZA GARTH has championed some of the most demanding works in the repertoire. Among these are the complete solo piano works of the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Donald Martino, which she has recorded on two nationally acclaimed CDs for the Centaur label.

A graduate of the Juilliard School, Ms. Garth is a founding member of the Chamber Players of the League of Composers/ISCM in New York City, and is in frequent demand as a guest artist. She is a member of the music faculty at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

She has been recognized twice by the Maryland State Arts Council with the Individual Artist Award, most recently in 2010 for her performance of John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes.

There’s music along the river

For Love wanders there

Pale flowers on his mantle

Dark leaves on his hair.

Longing & Belonging

  • Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

All opera singers inhabit roles.  But when a gifted, adopted Korean-American soprano sings Turandot, Helen in Flower Drum Song, or Tuptim in The King and I, the encounter becomes especially nuanced.

Join soprano Betsy Bates and pianist Eliza Garth as they explore the profound tension between foreignness and belonging in this program of exquisite repertoire by Puccini, Debussy, Gilbert and Sullivan, Roussel, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Copland, Bernstein, Kander, and Cage.

Tickets are $15 at the door, or Friday Five Pack is available.
