This program will be a collaboration with Laura Atkinson ’05, a mezzo-soprano and Maryville College alumna. She received her master’s degree from the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University, where she was awarded the Margot Fassler Award for Excellence in Performance of Sacred Music. As a Fulbright Scholar, she also studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Leipzig, Germany. Subsequently, she found a home on both the concert and opera stage in the U.S. and Europe, singing with numerous orchestras, professional choirs and German opera houses. Alex Ross of The New Yorker praised her “refined, restrained” singing.
