KOHLER — Renowned soprano and international super star, Renée Fleming will open the 74th season of the Kohler Distinguished Guest Series on Saturday, November 18th.
The show begins at 8 PM in the Kohler Memorial Theatre. Residents of Sheboygan County have a rare opportunity to experience one of the most beloved and celebrated singers of our time, in an intimate theatre setting.
Fleming is known for bringing new audiences to classical music and opera. A four-time Grammy Award winner, Fleming performs opera, jazz, indie rock, and musical soundtracks.
Accompanied by the acclaimed Craig Terry on piano, Fleming’s performance will include selections from Johannes Brahms, Caroline Shaw, Antonín Dvořák and a tribute to American singer and actress Barbara Cook, including Robert Meredith Willson’s “Til There was You” from The Music Man, and Richard Rogers’ “Whistle a Happy Tune,” from The King and I.
Fleming has sung for momentous occasions from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II. In 2014, she became the first opera singer to deliver the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In 2013, Fleming was awarded the national Medal of Arts, America’s highest honor for an individual artist.
