In honor of the exhibition Duane Michals: The Portraitist, which showcases the photographer’s keen ability to capture personalities with images, soprano Leslie Sandefur will perform operatic music known to express character through music. An award-winning lyric soprano noted for her rich and full voice, Sandefur has performed throughout the United States, including at the San Francisco Opera and Carnegie Hall. The program will include works by Mozart, Puccini, and Richard Strauss.
For more than 50 years, the Crocker has proudly presented its Classical Concert Series, a monthly concert featuring the finest musicians and singers from around the region and across the world. Performances are 60 minute concerts with no intermission and draw a connection to the art on view at the Museum and offer audiences a chance to hear a variety of classical music, from Baroque to contemporary. Performers are selected by the Crocker’s Classical Concert Music Board based on experience, quality of proposed program, and, most importantly, talent and musicianship. Space is limited and advance registration is recommended.
In advance of the Classical Concert, enjoy a docent-led tour of select works from the exhibition Duane Michaels: The Portraitist, plus portraits from the Crocker’s permanent collection, to help put the music in context with the art. Prelude Tours are open to all visitors.
