Mezzo-soprano in concert Saturday
A concert with mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano will be presented by Electric Earth Concerts in Bass Hall at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture on Saturday.
Cano’s career has grown quickly since her debut with the New York Metropolitan Opera in 2009. She had joined the The Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at The Met in 2008. As First Prize winner of the 2009 Young Concert Artist International Auditions, she has given recital debuts with her on- and off-stage partner Christopher Cano in New York at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, in Washington, D.C., at the Kennedy Center, in Boston at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center. In 2012 she was a Richard Tucker Career Grant and George London Winner.
Over the last two seasons she has sung at The Metropolitan Opera in five roles, including an acclaimed debut last fall as Meg Page in Falstaff. Other appearances include the Tucson Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Baltimore Symphony, and the Boston Lyric Opera.
This performance will include works of Johannes Brahms, Frank Bridge, Antonin Dvorak, Manuel de Falla, and Joseph Canteloube. She will be joined by Christopher Cano, on piano, and Jonathan Bagg playing viola.
The concert begins at 7:30 pm. Admission is $25.
