"Susan Graham is a singer who is at the pinnacle of her career. You don't typically get a star of that repute coming and performing in a small venue."
Graham has put together a program that travels the spectrum of the vocal repertoire from an early English song to a French piece. "She'll also delve into German leder and Russian song and at the end of the evening," says Cohen, "there will even be some pop songs from America and France from the early 1920's.
With only 600 seats in The Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater, Cohen says, the recital program promised to be a very personal experience. "It's just a singer and a pianist and the stage and there's nothing else so you'll get the most intimate viewing of Susan that you could imagine."
And since it's the mission of PCMS to make concerts affordable, Cohen says tickets are just $24. "You will experience an evening of music making in a setting that will definitely change your world when it comes to what you think of, your preconceived notions about classical music and about seeing an opera superstar performing right before you very eyes."
The concert is set for April 2nd at 8pm. For tickets, go to TheArtsinPhilly.org.
