Event Description

Sirgourney Cook is an operatic soprano. But her musical journey, to arrive at this point, has certainly not been achieved by taking and abiding by the traditional route.

“What Am I Doing Here?” is a solo performance that will contain a repertoire of music that also reflects the route Cook has taken musically, from a childhood immersed in gospel music, to touring world-wide as a backup singer for international pop star Jennifer Hudson. With a narrative creatively woven throughout and one that is always questioning, Cook will take the audience on her personal musical journey, which will ultimately lead her back to her love for gospel, God, and classical music.

Cook will be accompanied by Katie Barr on piano.

Free and open to all, including an informal Q&A and reception.

Background information:

Sirgourney Cook, who now lives with her husband in Buffalo, NY, is an alumna of the Boston Opera Collaborative and member of the Boston Lyric Opera chorus. She returned to Boston this past summer to perform as a soloist with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s presentation of “Symphonic Space Odyssey: 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing” and “Deep River”. She holds a Master of Music in Opera Performance from Longy School of Music of Bard College. As an opera singer and educator, she uses music as an avenue to inspire, educate and advocate for underprivileged youth.

Katie Barr is pianist, vocal coach, and teacher in the Boston area. She holds a B.S. in Music Education and has completed her Master of Music in Collaborative Piano from Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
