THIS IS A PAST EVENT

Stephanie Blythe, mezzo-soprano
Warren Jones, piano

Pre-concert Talk by Dr. Kurt-Alexander Zeller at 7:15 PM

Spivey Hall Debut

“Blythe’s remarkable vocal gifts have never been in doubt — her large, voluptuous tone, unerring pitch, and pinpoint articulation make her one in a million. But she’s also an uncommonly generous, communicative performer, one with an extraordinary ability to express the essence of music and text….she established an immediate connection between the music and her audience…the great mezzo-soprano defied expectations at every turn, and the results were nothing short of brilliant” (San Francisco Classical Voice).
