Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, known for the breadth of her repertoire and dazzling coloratura, is “the perfect 21st-century diva” said the Los Angeles Times, hailing her “glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace, and remarkable talent.” The concert at Jorgensen will feature her signature blend of repertoire, including the soaring beauty of opera and familiar favorites from the Great American Songbook.
“The staggering, joyful artistry of Joyce DiDonato reminds us that in any generation there are a few giants. [She] is not only a great, brave and inspiring artist – one of the finest singers of our time – but she is also a transformative presence in the arts…Joyce sings and the world is suddenly brighter. She compels us to listen actively, to hear things anew.” – Jake Heggie, Gramophone
