Vocal Arts DC presents
Michelle Bradley, soprano
With Ken Noda, piano

A 2018 alumna of the Metropolitan Opera's prestigious Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Michelle Bradley is also a recent winner of the George London Award and the Hildegard Behrens Prize. This season she makes concert and recital appearances with the Orchestre de Paris and for the George London Foundation, and her European operatic debut with Frankfurt Opera. Future engagements iniclude leading roles at the Met, Covent Garden, and Vienna. The program for her Washington debut recital with pianist Ken Noda includes selections by Giuseppe Verdi, Richard Wagner, Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, Henri Duparc, and Samuel Barber.

"Beyond the sheer beauty of her voice—rich, round, and violet-hued—and technical command, Bradley had clearly thought deeply about the music." (New York Classical Review)
