The Leaves Bee Greene: a Peace Concert
with Vibeka Lyman on Harpsichord
Saturday, July 11, 7:00PM
Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1123 Court Street, San Rafael
Free, donations graciously accepted
Vibeka Lyman is a Bay Area harpsichordist who graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Mills College and has studied with several international and local performers. Her first harpsichord teacher was Laurette Goldberg, then Katherine R. Perl, Olivier Baumont, Davitt Moroney and Bibiane Lapointe. She spent some time living in France, where she studied privately and audited classes at the Conservatoire Boulogne Billancourt.
She enjoys living in the Bay Area and making this her home base. However, she wishes to continue traveling and performing. Right now, she is in the application process for the Baroque Festival of Bolivia, and she has invitations to perform in Paris and Bangkok. This recital at St. Paul’s is the beginning of several concerts entitled The Leaves Bee Greene. The name is taken from a piece written by William Inglot during the Elizabethan era and is a favorite of Ms. Lyman’s.
The evening will begin with a brief talk connecting Baroque and Renaissance music with her perception of world peace. Vibeka has spent several years as a social justice organizer and feels there is a connection between creating a more peaceful world, and filling it with music.
Come enjoy a beautiful night of early music and witness the unique interpretation of a woman who wants to bring the world closer through the magic of harpsichord.
