METROPOLIS ENSEMBLE PRESENTS
Bridget Kibbey with The Sebastians (in partnership with Emerald City Music)
“...a Yo-Yo Ma of the harp...Within a few seconds Kibbey has given the harp an outsized personality and ethereal purity, like a piano set free of its hammers and heavy case.”
— Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A three-part collaborative touring and commissioning series produced by harpist Bridget Kibbey featuring music spanning the globe and centuries of musical tradition, from today’s Afro-Colombian folk grooves
to the elemental resonances of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.
Ceaselessly expanding the harp’s stylistic boundaries, join us in discovering with Bridget Kibbey music from bossa nova to the baroque, in collaboration with some of today’s most scintillating musicians.
Don’t miss these exclusive interactive previews before they go on tour!
Inspired by her love of Bach, Bridget Kibbey has reimagined an array of his most iconic keyboard works for solo harp and ensemble. This spring, Bridget will bring a concert of these works to Seattle and Tacoma as part of Emerald City Music: a newly formed, vibrant concert series started by violinist (and Metropolis Ensemble concertmaster) Kristin Lee. Come to experience a sneak-peak of this ambitious project featuring the heralded baroque band, The Sebastians and hear how Bridget applies the unique resonance of the harp and her own singular virtuosity to some of Bach's most dazzling music.
Watch Bridget’s performance of BWV 1020 with Metropolis’ own Siwoo Kim!
