Show Summary Details


During the autumn of 1955, at the age of twenty-four, Phillippa went to the African continent for the first time. ANTA had also agreed to sponsor her concerts in Cairo and Addis Ababa, where she performed for the Lion of Judah, Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia. During these commitments, her mother organized for her another European tour. In early October, in a decidedly captious mood, Philippa left for Europe stopping in Iceland, where she gave three concerts. Philippa continued traveling in Europe, recording solo recitals for radio in Hamburg, Munich, and Frankfurt then she went on to Brussels. She also performed solo recitals in the Netherlands and Germany to much success, however, Egypt had been a disappointment.
