The Power of Music: James Naughtie in conversation with Andrea Baker
August 8 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
This unique event brings together James Naughtie and trailblazing international mezzo-soprano Andrea Baker.
One of the BBC’s best-known journalists and presenters, James Naughtie is now special correspondent for BBC News. Inspired as a child by an eccentric but brilliant music teacher, he brings music to countless audiences. He presented Radio 4’s landmark series, The Making of Music. He has introduced the Proms from the Albert Hall and opera from Covent Garden and is a regular contributor to BBC Music magazine. He is, above all, a brilliant communicator. Here he selects five pieces of music that have particular resonance for him.
Internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano Andrea Baker began her career with San Francisco Opera and has appeared at many of the world’s greatest opera houses and arts festivals. She celebrates her own personal history and journey and that of African American female trailblazers worldwide in her current work Sing Sistah Sing. She is uniquely placed to explore the power of music in this event in the capital of the country she now calls home.
