A Chicago native raised in southern California, Deborah Voigt is recognized as one of the world’s most versatile singers and one of music’s most endearing personalities. Having made her name as a leading dramatic soprano, internationally revered for her performances in the operas of Wagner, Strauss and others, she is also an active recitalist and performer of Broadway standards and popular songs. Voigt has an extensive discography, and her masterclasses are enthusiastically received. She appears regularly – as both performer and host – in the Met’s Live in HD series, which is transmitted live to movie theaters around the world. Honored in the media with a CBS 60 Minutes profile, features in People and Vanity Fair, spotlights in More and O – the Oprah Magazine, and appearances on Good Morning America, CNN, and the nationwide telecast of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and July 4 fireworks celebration, Voigt has become America’s most visible and beloved diva. As WQXR’s inaugural Susan W. Rose Artist-in-Residence, she hosts the classical station’s new series The Sopranos with Debbie Voigt, hosts and performs at the New York Public Radio Gala, and she co-hosts the opening-night broadcast of Carnegie Hall Live, as well as a number of opera events and masterclasses at WQXR’s Greene Space. Her memoir, Call Me Debbie: True Confessions of a Down-to-Earth Diva, was published by HarperCollins in January 2015.

Also featuring performances by:

Daniela Mack
Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack has been acclaimed for her “caramel timbre, flickering vibrato, and crisp articulation” (Opernwelt) as she “hurls fast notes like a Teresa Berganza or a Frederica von Stade” (San Francisco Chronicle). Ms. Mack’s 2014/15 season engagements include Rosmira in the San Francisco Opera production of Handel’s Partenope and Rosina at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis in a new production of The Barber of Seville. Future seasons will see her at the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House-Covent Garden, San Francisco Opera, Arizona Opera, and Fort Worth Opera.
