Chestertown, MD, April 8, 2004 — The Washington College Concert Series concludes its 2003-2004 season with a performance by the renowned soprano, Julianne Baird, Friday, April 23, at 8 p.m. in the College's Tawes Theatre, Gibson Performing Arts Center. Single tickets can be purchased at the door, $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for youth 18 and under.
Julianne Baird has been hailed by critics as “one of the most extraordinary voices in the service of early music that this generation has produced.” Maintaining a busy concert schedule of solo recitals and performances of baroque opera and oratorio, Baird has performed with many major symphony orchestras, including the Cleveland Orchestra, Brooklyn Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Her recent performances include appearances at the International Lufthansa Festival in London, in solo cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, and at Tanglewood's Ozawa Hall in the Mozart Requiem. With over 100 recordings to her credit, Baird is considered one of America's most recorded women and, as a teacher and scholar, is regularly asked to provide master classes at universities and music schools throughout North America. A distinguished professor of music at Rutgers University, Baird is recognized as one of the few instructors who can both demonstrate the full range of the singer's art and explain it.
