Shenson Chamber Music Concert: Susanna Phillips
Artistic Director: Gilan Tocco Corn
“The Woman’s Experience” includes the Washington, D.C. premiere of William Harvey’s “Speaking for the Afghan Woman.”
Alabama-born soprano Susanna Phillips, recipient of Metropolitan Opera’s 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, continues to establish herself as one of today’s most sought-after singing actors and recitalists.
Recently, Phillips returned to the Metropolitan Opera for a ninth consecutive season, starring as Clémence in the Met premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s L’Amour de Loin conducted by Susanna Mälkki, as well as a return of her acclaimed Musetta in Puccini’s La Bohème. Other performances include her Zurich Opera debut as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and a turn as Cleopatra in Handel’s Giulio Cesare with Boston Baroque and Martin Pearlman.
Her orchestra engagements include performances at the San Francisco Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Celebrity Series of Boston, the Huntsville Chamber Music Guild, and her popular dual recital program with Eric Owens at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center for Washington Performing Arts. For Phillips’s complete biography and upcoming performances, please see her website.
