Setting the Spotlight on Mezzo-Soprano Stephanie Blythe

Friday, June 04, 2010

It’s rare to hear a voice with the depth and power of Stephanie Blythe’s. But it’s even rarer to hear that voice for free.

In anticipation of her Free for All at Town Hall performance this Sunday June 6, WQXR morning host Jeff Spurgeon sat down with the mezzo-soprano to talk about Sunday's recital. The Town Hall performance is programmed around a world premiere of Emily Dickinson poems, set to music by the late American composer James Legg. Blythe also lets WQXR in on how she chooses roles, and on one of her unrealized ambitions: to make an album of Kate Smith songs.

Reserved-seat tickets for Blythe’s Town Hall recital will be distributed, two to a person, starting at noon on Sunday at the Town Hall box office on 43rd Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue. The performance begins at 2 p.m.
