Women In Song is a new series of concerts celebrating the great talent of singers and songwriters of our time. From operatic to indie rock to folk and pop, these concerts feature some of the greatest young talents of today performing works of their own and covers of other amazing artists.
The first concert in the series takes place in the 200-seat theater at The Plaza Live for a more intimate experience and features Greif, songs by Schubert and Dvorak, as well as poetry by Walt Whitman underscored by members of the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. Eric Jacobsen will play cello on several pieces. It is a 60-minute performance with no intermission and a bar-hang immediately following the performance.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
ARIADNE GREIF has been praised for her "luminous, expressive voice," her "elastic and round high notes," and her "mesmerizing stage presence." She began her opera career as a 'boy' soprano in the Los Angeles area and at the LA Opera, eventually making an adult debut singing Lutoslawski's Chantefleurs et Chantefables with the American Symphony Orchestra. She will star as Adina in the Orlando Philharmonic’s February 2017 production of Donizetti’s The Elixir of Love.
This series also features well-known bluegrass and folk singer Sara Watkins on February 1st and Indie folk/folk rock star Aoife O’Donovan on March 1st.
The first Women in Song concert will be on Tuesday November 29th at 8:00 PM at The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Avenue, Orlando.
Tickets are $22 if purchased in advance, $27 at the door. There is a special discount if tickets for all three concerts are purchased together.
