Composer/singer Judith Cloud’s gift for vocal writing originates out of her own rich experiences as an accomplished mezzo-soprano soloist. Highlights of her performing career include a performance of the Brahms Neueliebeslieder Waltzer with the acclaimed radio program Saint Paul Sunday Morning, as well as being the soloist for the American premier performance of Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time. She still remains active as a recitalist and soloist, and performed the mezzo solos in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Flagstaff Symphony in the spring of 2009.

Although there are many women composing music throughout the United States, relatively few women composers have lived and composed for a significant time in Arizona. Cloud has been a resident of Northern Arizona for twenty years and represents this female minority within the state. Her music has been performed in foreign countries, namely Sweden, Italy, England, Brazil, Argentina and Chile.

The debut recital of seven vocal works by Judith Cloud. Composed between 2006 and 2008, the songs are varied and colorful, showcasing texts by Pablo Neruda, Pierre Ronsard, Betty Andrews, Kathleen Raine, Elizabeth Bishop, Perry Brass, and contemporary Spanish and Brazilian poets. Cloud’s gift for vocal writing originates out of her own rich experiences as an accomplished mezzo-soprano soloist. Highlights of her career include a performance of the Brahms Neueliebeslieder Waltzer with the acclaimed radio program St. Paul Sunday Morning, as well as soloist for the American premiere performance of Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time with the Winston-Salem Symphony.
