Chestertown, MD — The 57th season of the Washington College Concert Series continues with a performance by soprano Louise Toppin at the Norman James Theatre on Friday, February 13, at 8 p.m.

Toppin has received critical acclaim for her operatic, orchestral and oratorio performances in the United States, Czech Republic, Sweden, Uruguay, Scotland, China, England, New Zealand, the Carribean, Bermuda, Japan and Spain.

She has appeared in recital at many concert series including Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center.

Toppin also has garnered renown via touring as part of the production "Gershwin on Broadway," and she has to date recorded 12 CDs of American music on the Centaur, Albony, Innova, Cambria and Visionary Records labels.

"Louise Toppin is unquestionably one of our very best all-around sopranos," raved the Raleigh Spectator, while the Boston Globe praised the singer for music that was "sweetly delivered."
