An Evening with Renée Fleming


September 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Scott Speck, conductor

featuring critically acclaimed soprano

Renée Fleming is one of the most acclaimed singers of our time. In 2013, President Obama awarded her America’s highest honor for an artist, the National Medal of Arts. In 2014, she became the first classical artist ever to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Winner of four Grammy® awards, Renée has sung for momentous occasions from the Novel Peace Prize ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.

This one-time gala event not only offers the opportunity to hear a stunning performance but also the chance to interact with the star herself. Meet Renée Fleming at our Champagne Reception immediately following the concert. We will have a photographer available to capture the moment so that you can enjoy it. Be sure to snag tickets for this reception fast as they are limited. Tickets on sale June 4, 2018.
