In a special appearance at Pomona College, acclaimed soprano Christine Brandes and pianist/composer Eric Moe will offer a varied program of selections from 1828 to 2017. Noted for her radiant, crystalline voice and superb musicianship, Christine Brandes brings her committed artistry to repertoire ranging from the 17th century to newly composed works. She enjoys an active career in North America and abroad, performing at many of the world’s most distinguished festivals and concert series in programs spanning from recitals and chamber music to oratorio and opera.
Joining her is composer/pianist Eric Moe who has received numerous grants and awards for his work, including a Guggenheim Fellowship; commissions from the Fromm Foundation, the Koussevitzky Foundation and Meet-the-Composer USA. His playing can be heard on the Koch, CRI, Mode, Albany, New World Records and Innova labels. The New York Times has called his compositions “music of winning exuberance.”
