Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Costa Mesa, CA
The opera soprano is celebrated for her beauty, charming grace and acclaimed vocal talents.
She will be performing with the Pacific Symphony orchestra, conductor Carl St. Clair, in Orange County September 13, 8 p.m., at theRenée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, singing a varied program including songs from the Rogers & Hammerstein musical “The King and I,” as well as opera favorites such as Leoncavello’s “Mattinata,” and Mozart’s Overture to “The Abduction from the Seraglio.” Of particular anticipation will be her presentation of Richard Strauss’s hauntingly beautiful “Four Last Songs.”
Renée Fleming is someone who should be on everyone’s “bucket list” of great performers to see in person. Her repertoire of dozens of operas has taken her to opera houses all over the world. Yet, she continues to add to her artistic endeavors with recitals and mentoring budding opera artists with master classes while sending opera into the Chicago community of public schools. She serves as creative consultant to Lyric Opera of Chicago.
This September 13th Fleming recital is a stellar opportunity to experience the very best musical entertainment by a performer at her peak. It will be an evening of glistening music, with something special for everyone.
Fleming is the “gold medal” opera diva seen in opera houses around the world, on television, and as host with the Metropolitan Opera LiveHD in theaters. She is known as being the first classical performer to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 2014.
She is a consummate artist, taking the prize as BestClassical Vocal Soloist at the 2013 Grammys and was honored in 2013 with the National Medal of Arts at the White House, the highest award for an individual performer.
Renee Fleming, today’s great diva, is not to be missed.
