Music, art & fashion for peace: Joyce DiDonato at UC Berkeley ...The Style Almanac
This past week, Cal Performances featured Grammy-winning Joyce DiDonato at UC Berkeley. The mezzo-soprano vocalist, who has been called, “the most potent female singer of her generation,” by The New Yorker, collaborated with the Italian instrumental ensemble Il D’Oro. However, this wasn’t an ordinary performance.
In War and Peace – Harmony Through Music was created by Joyce DiDonato after the horrific attacks in France last year. Joyce was so halted by the senseless violence that she decided to completely change her original program, shifting to one that used music, art, and fashion to promote peace.
