This season, we experience the colorful palette of the woodwind instruments along with the vocal colors of two talented, distinguished vocalists: mezzo soprano Kristen Dininno and bass Luke Randall. Kristen Dininno, UM doctoral graduate student in Vocal Performance and up and coming opera singer brings exciting, musical portrayals to the various operatic and theatre roles she has performed. Luke Randall, also a UM doctoral graduate student in Vocal Performance and promising young bass, teaches voice on the music faculty at Eastern Michigan University. This concert features a variety of popular repertoire styles with selections for woodwinds, solo voices, and repertoire intertwining and exploring the “colors” of both woodwinds and voice.
