One of the world's best-known opera singers will help the Colorado Symphony kick off its next season.
Soprano Renee Fleming -- who has appeared on countless opera stages, won Grammy awards and performed at the Super Bowl -- will sing at Boettcher Concert Hall on Sept. 9, 2017, the orchestra announced recently.
The performance will also celebrate conductor Brett Mitchell's first concert as music director of the Colorado Symphony. (He's serving as music director designate this season, and spoke with CPR Classical in September about his new job.)
Details on what Fleming will sing in Denver, as well as Colorado Symphony's full 2017-18 season schedule, will be announced later. Here are a few highlights of the current season.
Fleming is one of many opera superstars set to sing on the Met Opera's weekly broadcasts, which air Saturday mornings on CPR Classical. (View the 2016-17 season schedule.) Hear Fleming in the broadcast of "Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard Strauss on May 13 at 11 a.m.
