a master class with soprano SHEREZADE PANTHAKI

3:00pm

Location: 

Classroom 9, Music Building, 3 Oxford St. (North of Harvard Yard)

Presented by: Learning From Performers
Admission: Free: No Tickets Require

Soprano Sherezade Panthaki’s international success has been fueled by superbly honed musicianship; “shimmering sensitivity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), “astonishing coloratura with radiant top notes” (Calgary Herald); a vocal color “combining brilliance with a dark, plumlike tone” (The Wall Street Journal); and passionately informed interpretations “mining deep emotion from the subtle shaping of the lines” (The New York Times). An acknowledged star in the early-music field, she has developed strong collaborations with many of the world’s leading interpreters including, among others, Nicholas McGegan, Mark Morris, Simon Carrington and Masaaki Suzuki, with whom she made her New York Philharmonic debut in a program of Bach and Mendelssohn. Panthaki, currently a Christoph Wolff Visiting Performer at the Harvard University Department of Music, will conduct a master class for Harvard undergraduate singers.
