The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra’s Masterworks season continues with the presentation of “Harp and Haydn” on February 25, 2022. This performance features works from Prokofiev, Haydn, and is highlighted by Alberto Ginastera’s 1965 Harp Concerto.
Bridget Kibbey will take the place of Yolanda Kondonassis, who was originally scheduled to perform the Ginastera on the 25th. Kondonassis recently incurred a wrist injury due to slipping on ice and must regretfully withdraw from the performance with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra.
The live performance takes place on Friday, February 25 at 7:30 PM in the Capitol Theater at the Overture Center in Madison. The Pre-Concert discussion takes place at 6:30 PM on February 25 in the Wisconsin Studio on the third floor of the Overture Center. This discussion will include insights behind the performance with both Maestro Andrew Sewell and guest soloist Bridget Kibbey.
Tickets for Harp and Haydn start at $15 for students, $30 for regular admission. Tickets can be purchased at overture.org or at the Overture Center ticket office.
Bridget Kibbey, called the “Yo-Yo Ma of the harp,” by Vogue Senior Editor Corey Seymour, is in demand for her innovative, virtuosic performances that expand the expressive range of the harp. As a soloist and collaborator with today’s top artists, she crosses genres to emphasize and elevate the harp’s role through centuries and cultures of music.
Kibbey currently tours several projects of her own conception — ranging from French Masterworks of the Belle Époque to the riches of Baroque Counterpoint, to popular folk music from South America to Sephardic and Persian traditions. Kibbey has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician in festivals across the globe.
