Fleur Barron, mezzo-soprano & Julius Drake, piano
March 19, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$50
Fleur Barron’s mezzo-soprano is “multi-layered and vibrant: imagine a voice that seems to have the blood in one’s viens and the life forces of nature running through it” (Opera News).
Hailed as “a charismatic star” (The Boston Globe) and “a knockout performer” (The Times), the Singaporean-British artist possesses “incredible poise and expressive weight – not to mention a thrillingly dark and rich-veined mezzo, and a striking stage presence” (Seen and Heard International).
Barron makes her Atlanta debut with Julius Drake, the “collaborative pianist nonpareil” (The New Yorker) who conjures “myriad pianistic moods with a masterly touch” (The Times).
