Jamie Barton To Present Recital As Part Of Renée Fleming VOICES series

By Francisco Salazar

The 2018–2019 Renée Fleming VOICES series will continue with a recital by Jamie Barton.

Accompanied by pianist Kathleen Kelly, the recital will include music by Haydn, Strauss, and Ravel, as well as works by female composers Nadia and Lili Boulanger and Americans Elinor Remick Warren and Amy Beach.

Barton will also perform “Love After 1950,” a contemporary song cycle by Libby Larsen that uses offbeat vocal styles like blues, tango, and honky-tonk to evoke different moods.

In a press statement, Renée Fleming said, “From the classical world, where virtuosity and technique are developed to Olympic standards, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is a singer of such spectacular gifts that she has won virtually every top award there is: the Richard Tucker Prize, the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, and the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, to name but three. And her star is still rising.”

The recital is set to take place on March 23, 2019 at the Terrace Theater.
