Golda Schultz is set to make her Los Angeles debut in two performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The soprano will perform in a concert with music by Salonen and Sibelius led by Esa-Pekka Salonen on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019 and then in Beethoven’s Ninth symphony led by Gustavo Dudamel on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019, both at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
In a press statement Schultz said, “It was such a privilege and honor to work with Maestro Dudamel and The Mahler Chamber Orchestra last September, and now to sing Beethoven 9 in my LA debut will be absolutely thrilling. He is an inspirational conductor and musician, and as a human he is one of my new favorites – so full of joy and wonder! This will be my first time working with Maestro Salonen and I am truly grateful for this chance. To sing something as beautiful as Luonnotar in his native tongue is daunting for sure, but I look forward to learning from him.”
Schultz is set to open the 2019-20 Metropolitan Opera season and will return to the house for R. Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier” in the role of Sophie.
