Program notes

One of our community's favorite yearly highlights is back on The sensational, three-time Grammy-winning Joyce DiDonato—"perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation" (The New Yorker)—returns to Carnegie Hall to share her uncommon expertise, ebullient spirit, and inspirational love for music with a lucky group of young professional opera singers. In this highly anticipated trio of master classes, Joyce DiDonato welcomes soprano Jazmine Saunders, mezzo-soprano Karen Mathilde Heier Hovd, countertenor Augustin Pennino, and tenor Travon D. Walker alongside expert collaborative pianists Joel Harder and Justina Lee. Catch the first and third evenings as well!
