Renée Fleming with the New Jersey Symphony OrchestraPatrick Summers, conductor Sunday, December 18, 2005 Grammy Award-winning soprano Renee Fleming returns to Prudential Hall, this time to lend her sensuous voice and unrivaled interpretive skills to a special program of sacred songs and arias for the holiday season by Mozart, Handel, Fauré, Gounod and others, inspired by her best-selling, critically acclaimed CD, Sacred Songs. The program will also include a selection of Fleming's favorite Christmas carols. "Fleming may be the most celebrated American soprano before the public right now, with her fresh, lustrous voice of rare opulence, her warm stage presence that seems both queenly regal and ‘girl next door,’ and her magnificent way with a song," says The Washington Post. Co-presented by NJPAC and NJSO.
Sally and I are pilgrimaging to the NJPAC via the NJTransit. Neither of us has ever done this so I'm a bit nervous about arriving there on time. We're on the backstage list and I have vowed to have my camera out and ready so as not to miss precious opportunities once again.
