This year holds many exciting projects including the world premiere of Charlie Parker’s Yardbird with Opera Philadelphia. It is my privilege to share the stage with longtime friend and acclaimed tenor, Lawrence “Larry” Brownlee. Larry sings the title role in this new American opera and I sing the role of his mother.
And, I am looking forward to another world premiere in the fall with a tone poem by my dear friend and award-winning composer, Richard Danielpour. Richard has set Dr. Maya Angelou’s final poem, Love’s Exquisite Freedom, for soprano and orchestra. I am honored to premiere this work with the Asheville Symphony.
I hope to see you through the year at these and other performances!
