Miah Persson soprano
Joseph Middleton piano

Internationally-renowned Swedish soprano Miah Persson has worked all over the world as a concert artist and recitalist, as well as on the operatic stage. A regular on the stages of the Metropolitan Opera, Bayerische Staatsoper, and Glyndebourne Festival, she is joined by Joseph Middleton, for an evening inspired by the Barber Institute’s exhibition ‘Maman: Vuillard and Madame Vuillard’. Curated by Dr Francesca Berry, the exhibition marks 150 years since the artist’s birth and is the first exhibition dedicated exclusively to Vuillard’s portrayal of his mother.

Join Miah and Joseph for a selection of songs by Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann, Duparc, Nystroem, and Sibelius.

The exhibition runs from 19 Oct – 23 Jan 2019.
