Recital Series: Julia Bullock & John Arida

“[Bullock] sings with a sense of grace and urgency, lending her performances the feel of being both of the moment and incredibly timeless.”
Vanity Fair

Known for “communicat[ing] intense, authentic feeling, as if she were singing right from her soul” (Opera News), American soprano Julia Bullock has headlined productions and concerts at preeminent opera houses, concert halls, and festivals around the world. Most recently dazzling Armory audiences in the North American premiere of Michel van der Aa’s technologically ambitious chamber opera Upload in 2022, the acclaimed vocalist returns with pianist John Arida in a much more intimate space—the Board of Officers Room—for a program spanning the breadth of the song repertoire from the Romantic period to today that beautifully showcases her versatile artistry and probing intellect.

Program features works by Schubert, Wolf, Weill, Rossini, Cage, and Berio as well as Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Pat Castleton, Cora “Lovie” Austin, and Billy Taylor


The Recital Series is supported in part by the Howard & Sarah D. Solomon Foundation

Public support is provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature.
