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.

Chloe Lankshear and Francis Greep talk to Barbie about Becoming Beatrix

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.
