Little Girl Blue: From Nina Simone

Having delighted Armory audiences in 2015 with her program of Benjamin Britten’s powerful suites and Sylvia Plath’s haunting poetry, renowned cellist Sonia Wieder-Atherton returns to the Board of Officers Room with the North American premiere of a program that boldly reimagines the radical, sometimes fierce music of Nina Simone. With her cello taking the role of the torch singer’s voice, Wieder-Atherton digs deep into Simone’s universe and delivers a kaleidoscope of emotions, from honey-sweet to raw and uncompromising, and an exploration of diverse styles in this musical tour de force.
