Curtis in Concert
Part of Festival O19
Building on the success of Festival O18’s “Fridays at Field” recital series, emergent singers trained at Philadelphia’s prestigious Curtis Institute of Music once again perform in recital at the historic and intimate Field Concert Hall. Hailed as “a delightful afternoon” (Parterre), the series has been expanded for O19, with separate Saturday and Sunday recitals repeated over both weekends of the festival.
Two recent Curtis graduates will star in the recital series: Philadelphia native Karen Slack, a soprano hailed for her “warm and rich voice” (Opera News); and the “lush-toned” (Wall Street Journal) soprano Rachel Sterrenberg, known to Opera Philadelphia audiences for leading roles in The Magic Flute and Charlie Parker’s Yardbird. Full details on singers and repertoire will be announced at a later date.
