Gweneth Ann Rand to perform ground-breaking recital programme at Wigmore Hall

In the Footsteps of… is the title of a ground-breaking recital programme from Wigmore Hall Associate Artist Gweneth Ann Rand. Realised with violinist Sarah Daramy-Williams, pianist Allyson Devenish and with actor Adjoa Andoh as narrator, the programme ranges from traditional spirituals through standard recital favourites to world premières by Errollyn Wallen and Clement Ishmael.

The concert on 14 October 2021 will trace the footsteps of pioneering black artists who performed at Wigmore Hall during the twentieth century, including Marian Anderson, Grace Bumbry and Jessye Norman.
