“It is rare, not only for a male singer who’s not a tenor, but especially a bass-baritone to be able to do this kind of concert with an orchestra like the Chicago Philharmonic.”
Soprano Angel Blue, mezzo-sopranos Denyce Graves and Isabel Leonard, and jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant will also appear on the concert.
It’s been a strange, difficult year for the music world, which is all the more reason to celebrate musical excellence.
Denyce Graves was the perfect guest to launch WFMT’s new digital series! The celebrated mezzo-soprano discusses her career, her relationship with the late Justice Ginsburg, and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the opera world.
The Metropolitan Opera will hire an all-black outside chorus next season for its first presentation in nearly three decades of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.
