Soprano Renee Fleming In Concert With The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra
Thursday night, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will be joined by one of the finest American singers performing today. Soprano Renee Fleming has graced stages around the world to rapturous praise – from the Metropolitan Opera to the 2014 Super Bowl halftime show. She sings opera repertoire, of course, but she also sings jazz and indie, including a 2010 album of covers of songs by the likes of Leonard Cohen and Band of Horses.
"I enjoy the variety, I love singing in all it's forms," Fleming says. "I like to introduce other audiences also to what we do, but it's also for my own curiosity."
Fleming will perform Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer 1915, some operatic arias, and songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I with the MSO on Thursday.
