Meredith Arwady description

Grammy Award-winning American contralto Meredith Arwady brings a delightful program in life-affirming contrast to her role as Death in The Nightingale and Other Fables. Accompanied by Michael Ierace, her rich vocal intensity will be brought to a gloriously eclectic program with a distinctly avian theme, including works by Samuel Barber, Antonín Dvořák and Edward Elgar, alongside songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney (“Blackbird”), Richard Sherman (“Feed the Birds”), Harold Arlen (“Somewhere Over the Rainbow”) and Tom Lehrer (“Poisoning Pigeons in the Park”).

Arwady showed that she is that rarity, a genuine contralto... with a rich, dusky tone [and] daunting power in the low notes.
