Stein College 60th Anniversary Celebration with Jamie Barton, mezzo-soprano and Jake Heggie, piano
Join us as we celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Linda Berry Stein College of Fine Arts with classical music superstars Jamie Barton, mezzo-soprano and composer/pianist Jake Heggie followed by an Anniversary Gala Dinner.
Praised by Gramophone as having “the sort of instrument you could listen to all day, in any sort of repertoire,” Ms. Barton also uses her powerful voice offstage to lift up women, LGBTQ+ people, marginalized communities and, in turn, illuminates the path to a more equitable future in the arts.
Ms. Barton’s operatic engagements have included appearances with many of the world’s great opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro Real Madrid, Houston Grand Opera, Los Angeles Opera, and San Francisco Opera.
Jamie Barton is accompanied by a longtime friend and collaborator, Jake Heggie (Dead Man Walking, Moby-Dick), featuring selections from their recent recording, which explores the perspectives of the powerful women represented in Heggie’s songs and operas, and with works by Florence Price, Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert among others.
“Barton and Heggie…transport you to a land of contemplation, tears, and side-splitting hilarity. This recital is a knockout” (Stereophile).
