Lucy Fitz Gibbon


The soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, who comes from Davis, California, is a graduate of Yale University, the Glenn Gould School of the Royal Conservatory in Toronto, and the Bard College Conservatory. It was there that she met Dawn Upshaw, who suggested her for this evening’s concert with Maria Schneider. She is interested on the one hand in the neglected early music repertoire, including works by Barbara Strozzi, Francesco Sacrati, and Agostino Agazzari, which she has performed. On the other hand she collaborates with such contemporary composers as John Harbison, Sheila Silver, and Pauline Oliveros. On the opera stage she appeared with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra as Miles in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, and in the concert hall she has performed with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the American Classical Orchestra, and the American Symphony Orchestra. In 2016 she appears at the Marlboro Festival.
