Glimmerglass Glimpse: From the Diary of Sally Hemings

Sung by soprano Alyson Cambridge with Djordje Nesic, pianist

This dramatic song cycle by William Bolcom and Sandra Seaton imagines the experience of Sally Hemings, who was enslaved by Thomas Jefferson, through fictional diary entries. Sung in first person with piano, the piece tells Hemings’ story from age 9 until Jefferson’s death. A story of love, conflict and profound depth, Alyson Cambridge's powerful performance is captured in a beautifully designed and recorded video.

Glimmerglass Glimpses is a series of offerings to celebrate song, story, and community — from the safety of home.
