The University of Washington Department of Music has announced that its Great Artist series will resume in-person performances in 2022. Four recitals are scheduled to take place in the E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall at 560 Music Center.
The Great Artist Series concerts will feature soprano Angel Blue on January 23, pianists Kirill Gerstein and Garrick Ohlsson on February 27, the Grammy-winning Attacca quartet on April 3, and pianist Seong-Jim Cho on May 1.
“Angel Blue just played lead roles in Metropolitan Opera’s ‘Fire Shut Up in My Bones’ and ‘Porgy and Bess’,” Patrick Burke, associate professor and Music Arts & Sciences chair, said in a statement. . Gerstein and Ohlsson âare kings of the piano who will take the stage together for a unique experience.
âThe Attacca Quartet has been widely acclaimed as a passionate advocate of contemporary repertoire,â said Burke. âSeong-Jin Cho, who captured the world’s attention in 2015 with a first prize at the International Chopin Competition, is already considered one of the consummate talents of his generation.
Single tickets cost $ 40, $ 32 for seniors and University of Washington faculty and staff, and $ 15 for students and children. Subscriptions to the four recitals are $ 120 and include first-rate reserved seats, post-concert receptions with the performers (when available) and all box office fees.
