The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera is proud to present opera singer Renée Fleming in a Gala Event on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 7:30pm at the Tivoli Theatre. CSO Music Director Kayoko Dan will conduct the first half as Fleming performs opera and classical works. The second half will be conducted by CSO Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt and will feature Fleming on lighter fare such as Broadway tunes.
One of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. At a White House ceremony in 2013, the President awarded her the National Medal of Arts, America’s highest honor for an individual artist. Known as “the people’s diva” and winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, she continues to grace the world’s greatest opera stages and concert halls, now extending her reach to include other musical forms and media. Over the past few seasons, Renée has hosted a wide variety of television and radio broadcasts, including the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series for movie theaters and television, and Live From Lincoln Center on PBS. She brought her voice to a vast new audience in 2014, as the first classical artist to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.
She is currently starring in The Merry Widow at the Metropolitan Opera and will make her Broadway debut this Spring in Living on Love.
