Christine Brewer, One of the Most Sought-After Dramatic Sopranos in the World, Presents Master Class at Webster University
Christine Brewer, one of the most sought-after dramatic sopranos in the world and Webster Visiting Artist in Residence, is giving a master class at Webster University. Participants will be advanced voice students from Webster's music department, but the class is open to the public to observe. Proceeds will benefit the James Nigh Scholarship in Opera at Webster University.
Ms Brewer recently opened the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s 67th season with a program featuring Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and the Immolation scene from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung. The New York Times calls Ms Brewer a “superlative Strauss singer” and she also looks forward to singing the German composer’s Four Last Songs in November with the St. Louis Symphony under David Robertson, besides featuring his music alongside that of Marx, Thomson, Ives, and Smith in recital with pianist and frequent collaborator Craig Rutenberg, at New York’s Alice Tully Hall.
