CONCERT INFORMATION: Dramatic repertoire requires voices of unusual strength and penetrating color, but natural gifts alone are insufficient. To do justice to this repertoire, artists must also cultivate a rock-solid technique. The singers in the Grande Voci concert fulfill both criteria, as evidenced by their successes on the stages of the world’s most prestigious opera houses and concert halls. These distinguished singers, all of whom enjoy international careers and representation by renowned management, are committed to meeting the highest standards of the demanding dramatic repertoire. Concert attendees will have the opportunity to hear performers with large voices singing notoriously difficult arias and ensembles that are tailor-made for their talents. In short, the event will enable the audience to experience the full power of opera.
