Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Susan Graham performs Sept. 27
Grammy-winner Susan Graham — dubbed “America’s favorite mezzo” by Gramophone magazine —and pianist Bradley Moore will perform at Blair’s Ingram Hall at 8 p.m. Saturday, September 27.
Graham achieved international stardom within a few years of her professional debut. Her operatic roles span four centuries, from Monteverdi’s Poppea to Jake Heggie’s Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), which was written especially for her. Her recital repertoire is equally wide-ranging; her most recent release, Virgins, Vixens, and Viragos, features music by 14 composers from Purcell to Sondheim.
At Blair, Graham performs a program titled “Good Girls/Bad Girls.” Expect Lady MacBeth, Ophelia and more of opera’s favorite ladies.
Graham will also conduct a master class from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, September 28, also in Ingram Hall. Participation in the class is limited to Blair School students by audition, but the public is welcome to attend.
Susan Graham appears by arrangement with IMG Artists, 152 West 57th St., Fifth Floor, New York, N.Y., 10019, 212-994-3500
Susan Graham can be heard on BMG, Erato, Sony, Decca, Philips, EMI, and the Warner Classics family of labels.
