Hailed as “the reigning American dramatic soprano of the day” by the New York Times, multiple Grammy winner Christine Goerke visits with a recital that shows off two fantastically different sides of her musical personality. The first half of her program revels in repertoire you might expect from a Wagnerian of her stature—songs by Strauss and Brahms, and arias from Wagner roles she has sung to great acclaim. The second half is a frolic through American popular music, featuring songs like “Deep Purple,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “Hickory Hill,” and a volley of Carrie Jacobs-Bond’s lighthearted Half-Minute Songs.
