More about the concert…
Sheila Silver’s Lullaby for Bassoon is inspired by the true account of a Southern woman slave’s escape. Having been hidden away from her children for 7 years, the night before she was to be shipped to the north, she met with her daughter and held her in her arms all night and sang to her. This image inspired the Lullaby.
