One of the most celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, Soprano Renée Fleming captivates audiences with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. In 2013, Miss Fleming received the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist. Known as “the people’s diva” and winner of the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, she continues to grace the world’s greatest opera stages and concert halls, now extending her reach to include other musical forms and media. The Gallo Center is thrilled and honored to present Miss Fleming in this recital performance.
