Soprano Phyllis Bryn-Julson, professor of voice at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, will give the opening concert in Peabody's "Music for the Close of the Century" series tonight at 7:30 in Friedberg Hall. The series will continue in November with three more concerts -- the last of which will again feature Bryn-Julson -- that will explore the range of contemporary musics as the second millennium comes to a close.
Tonight, Bryn-Julson -- who is more closely identified with contemporary music than any other living singer -- will perform works by Luciano Berio, Gyorgy Kurtag, Cathy Berberian and others. The other concerts in the "Music for the Close of the Century" series will take place Nov. 1, Nov. 11 and Nov. 28. Tickets for all concerts are $14 and $7 for seniors and students.
