Soprano Courtney Huffman joins forces with pianist Dr. Stephanie Emberley to present a dramatic program stretching the boundaries of the Classical vocal recital. Featuring some of the famous "war horses" of Richard Strauss along with more obscure pieces by Lili Boulanger and a semi-staged version of Libby Larsen's riveting song cycle Try Me, Good King: The Last Words of the Wives of Henry VIII, it is sure to be an unforgettable evening of music.

A consummate recitalist, Ms. Huffman made her Carnegie Hall recital debut after taking First Place in the NATS 2008 Artist Award Competition, presented a recital tour through Southern China, and has been a regular soloist with Boston Baroque. Currently, Ms. Huffman teaches voice lessons, vocal pedagogy, vocal literature, and diction courses at Gordon College.
