So often, composers wrote songs spontaneously for lovers, colleagues or friends. The composer was likely a pianist, choosing a text and crafting the vocal line for someone dear to them. Richard Strauss wrote a great many of his songs for his wife Pauline, a formidable singer. Claude Debussy wrote several songs as a young man, head-over-heels in love with the red-haired, green-eyed soprano Blanche Vasnier. And Benjamin Britten produced almost all of his songs and operatic tenor roles for his lifelong partner Peter Pears. We guarantee you'll fall in love with Pia Harris's voice, too.

Pia has performed principal roles for New York Lyric Opera, Opera Holland Park (London) as well as for West Australian Opera, Lost and Found, Freeze Frame Opera and the innovative Vocal Performance Initiative, based in Albany.
