Chloe’s idea to construct a program around the life and legacy of Beatrix Potter has led the Song Company to explore a wide range of beautiful Art Song by Claude Debussy, Robert Schumann, Eliot Carter, George Crumb, Ross Edwards, Sally Whitwell, and Elena Kats-Chernin.
The songs reflect different stages in Potter’s life, including childhood explorations, her foray into scientific research and discoveries, and her single-minded determination to protect and preserve nature that led to her founding the National Trust.
