About the Artist:

A young mezzo from Georgia is currently taking the world by storm, and her name is Jamie Barton. Sporting a nose ring and an ebullient smile, Barton summons a tone that has earned her comparisons to many of the mid-20th century greats—and indeed, the magnificent Marilyn Horne called a recent recital “one of the greatest I’ve ever heard.” Just this year she won the prestigious Richard Tucker Award, an honor conferred annually on a rising American star that places her in the lineage of Renée Fleming and Joyce DiDonato. But as her voice becomes a staple in large opera houses, we are thrilled to invite her into the more immediate and personal setting of Richardson Auditorium to ring in opening night of Princeton University Concerts’ 2016-2017 mainstage series! She brings us a program of late Romantic lieder, a wonderful showcase for her richly detailed instrument whichThe LosAngelesTimes calls “the darkly creamy lager that poured forth from altos of yore.”
