Susanna Phillips Master Class @ Northwestern University

  • Ryan Center for the Musical Arts 70 Arts Circle Drive Evanston, IL, 60208 United States (map)

Recipient of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, soprano Susanna Phillips has established herself as one of today’s most sought-after vocalists. Anthony Tommassini of the New York Times observes, “She has the purity and bloom of a Mozart lyric soprano. Yet her voice can lift phrases with penetrating sound and deep richness.” During the 2014-15 season she returned to the Metropolitan Opera to star as Antonia in Les contes d’Hoffmann, in addition to appearances as the Countess in a Lisbon production of Le nozze di Figaro and the title role in Handel’s Agrippina with Boston Baroque. Her orchestral engagements included a performance of Fauré’s Requiem with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and a return to the San Francisco Symphony for Mahler’s Fourth Symphony.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for students with valid ID.
