Recital Series: Jamie Barton & Jake Heggie

“A once-in-a-generation voice, a born communicator, a deeply compassionate human being with so much to give to audiences—Jamie Barton is an artist whose time truly has come.”
Opera Magazine

“The divine operatic mezzo Jamie Barton was allowed to pretty much run away with the show…”
The New York Times

Charismatic American mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton partners with pianist Jake Heggie on a program of Brahms, Schubert, and Heggie, with special attention to female composers. Recipient of the Beverly Sills Artist Award, Richard Tucker Award, and BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition (both Main and Song Prizes), and a Grammy nomination, Barton is navigating a huge career on the opera and recital stage. “Leader of a new generation of opera stars” (The New York Times), Barton brings this leadership to what promises to be stirring and engaging performances. Barton will showcase the sheer beauty of her voice in the intimate Board of Officers Room.


The Recital Series is supported in part by The Reed Foundation and the Howard & Sarah D. Solomon Foundation.
