Brett Mitchell, conductor
Renée Fleming

Your Colorado Symphony is proud to present Renée Fleming for a one-night-only performance with the orchestra. One of the most beloved and celebrated musical ambassadors of our time, soprano Renée Fleming will captivate you with her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. 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. At a White House ceremony in 2013, the President awarded her the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist. In recent years, Renée has hosted a wide variety of television and radio broadcasts, including the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series for movie theaters and television, and Live From Lincoln Center on PBS. She brought her voice to a vast new audience in 2014, as the first classical artist to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

Join your Colorado Symphony and soprano Renée Fleming as we celebrate the appointment of Brett Mitchell as the new Music Director for your Colorado Symphony!
