September 11: Jenny Lind’s America, 1850-1852

Coloratura soprano Zoe Vandermeer will sing and play the Welsh Triple Harp, featuring music that the “Swedish Nightingale” sang on her famed American Tour in 1850, which was promoted by Connecticut’s own P.T. Barnum. Music by composers Donizetti and Chatterton will be interspersed with anecdotes of the life and times of Jenny Lind.

Zoe Vandermeer is a prize-winning graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and performs internationally, including her debut at Carnegie Hall in 2014.
