Concert Series Presents Soprano Soloist

The Concert Series at Lenoir-Rhyne University will continue its 2011-2012 season with a free performance by soprano soloist Danielle Talamantes on Sunday, November 20 at 4 p.m. The concert will be held at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Hickory.

Talamantes has been described as a passionate opera star on the rise that completely commands her stage with body language that complements her vocal character portrayals. With a number of sold out performances, Talamantes has quickly become one of the regions most sought after soloists. Her concert in Hickory will include works by Schubert, Granados, Leoncavallo, Respighi, and Duke Ellington.

Her unique talents have also grabbed the attention of a number of classical music organizations, symphonies, and opera companies. She recently debuted as Violetta in Verdi’s La Traviata with the Fremont Opera. Other performances include work with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the National Philharmonic Chorale and Orchestra, and the Oratorio Society of Virginia.

Talamantes has received numerous competition honors of 1st and 2nd place across the country. She will continue to gain national notoriety with the current concert season including debuts with the Nashville Symphony and the Baltimore Choral Arts Society.

Established in the fall of 2000, the Concert Series at Lenoir-Rhyne University serves the university community and the greater Hickory area by providing opportunities to hear and interact with superb musical artists. The Concert Series brings musical artists to the University to present concerts and recitals, work with students in the master class setting, lecture to music classes, and provide examples of professional artistry in music.
