Sinfonia presents Julia Bullock
The 2012 Sinfonia Gulf Coast Prize winner, vocalist Julia Bullock, will take the Sinfonia stage at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29, at Destiny Worship Center in Miramar Beach, to perform in “Made in America” featuring selections by George Gershwin, Josephine Baker and Leonard Bernstein. Bullock was the winner of the 2014 Naumburg International Vocal Competition and recipient of a 2015 Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, the 2015 Richard F. Gold Grant from the Shoshana Foundation and Lincoln Center’s 2015 Martin E. Segal Award.
Jamie Bernstein will return on Friday, Jan. 29, to host two morning performances for Okaloosa and Walton County’s third through eighth grade students at Destiny Worship Center. The program, titled “Cowboys, Caballeros and Copland,” explores the music of American composer Aaron Copland, and will be presented in conjunction with the annual “Paint the Music” project, allowing students to visually interpret excerpts of music at the live Sinfonia performance.
Bernstein will also join Sinfonia during the evening performance of “Made in America” as featured narrator for Aaron Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait.” Additional works include Copland’s “El Salon Mexico” and “Four Dance Episodes from Rodeo,” as well as those featuring soprano Julia Bullock.
