• Perspectives: Joyce DiDonato

  • Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato’s Perspectives series presents her wide range of interests and talents, all supported by the impeccable artistry, vibrant personality, and idealism that has made her an audience favorite.

    Ms. DiDonato’s artistic collaborators range from The English Concert, with whom her uncanny talent with Handel will be on display, to the Brentano String Quartet, who joins her for a New York premiere of music by Jake Heggie. Her other performance partners include pianist David Zobel, soprano Nicole Cabell, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, conductor Maurizio Benini, and The Philadelphia Orchestra in a program of familiar and forgotten music of the bel canto era—repertoire with which she’s closely associated.

    Growing out of her participation in the Weill Music Institute's Lullaby Project—a program that engages young mothers in songwriting workshops—Ms. DiDonato will select and sing lullabies written by the participants in commissioned arrangements by Jake Heggie as part of her concert with the Brentano String Quartet. She also brings her gifts as a dynamic educator and passionate advocate to lead a set of master classes for young singers and work with New York City middle school students.
