September 9 – Musical Performance to support Underground Railroad

Kathleen Battle
The Underground Railroad Project

Overview

Soprano Kathleen Battle’s luminous voice has been called “…without qualification, one of the very few most beautiful in the world” (The Washington Post). Yet beyond the glory of her singing, in a career filled with countless accolades, honors and major milestones, what has perhaps distinguished her most is her almost magical ability to create an unwavering emotional bond between herself, her music and her audience.

In this very special performance, the American soprano explores iconic traditional spirituals and the writings of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, accompanied by the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, two narrators and featuring Cal State Fullerton’s University Singers.

“Battle’s pure soprano voice made for a stellar performance. She sang a series of spirituals ranging from ‘Go Down, Moses’ to ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’ and infused intense emotion into each song…Last night was an evening to remember.” – DC Metro Theatre Arts

Venue: Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert HallTickets start at $19.00
