On Friday, March 23,
at 7:30 p.m. in Volunteers Hall the Warner Free Lecture Trust will present musicologist Liane Curtis, Ph.D., Carol Cubberley (violin), and Sandy Lin (piano) in a tribute to Amy Beach. Beach (1867-1944) rose to fame in the late 19th century and was widely praised as an important American composer, but after her death she fell into obscurity. A rediscovery began in the 1970s, reaching a peak in 2017, the 150th anniversary of her birth. Dr. Curtis considers Beach's musical legacy, with special attention to the Romance, composed for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, and the Violin Sonata, Beach's first work to achieve fame in Europe. The event is free and open to the public.
