The DeKalb Symphony Orchestra is excited to welcome soprano, Maria Clark, as their featured soloist on September 24, 2019 performing Strauss: Four Last Songs and Carter's Cantata of Spirituals.
Ms. Clark has been acclaimed for her virtuosic skills of expressive singing across the idioms of Opera, Oratorio, and Art Song, and has been critiqued as possessing “The Voice of An Angel”. She has performed with opera companies such as Atlanta Opera, North Carolina Opera, Knoxville Opera, and L’Opera Comique, and has performed symphonic works with DeKalb Symphony, Ludwig Symphony, Georgia Philharmonic, and Fosbo - Fundación Orquesta Sinfónica de Bogotá.
The program will also include Beethoven's Egmont Overture and the rarely performed Darker America by William Grant Still.
The performance will be held at 8:00 p.m. in the Marvin Cole Auditorium at Georgia State University, Clarkston Campus. The public is invited to meet the conductor at the 7:00 p.m. pre-concert conversation.
