Presenter: Cherie Caluda

Lecture location: Warner Theatre Atrium

CHERIE CALUDA, soprano and Associate Professor of Voice at the The Hartt School, has demonstrated versatility throughout her career, excelling in opera, oratorio, song and chamber music. Since at The Hartt School, she’s established herself as a champion interpreter of contemporary works having collaborated with numerous composers to perform their works, including Sparrows with Pulitzer Prize-winning Joseph Schwantner and Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems by Bob Dylan with Academy Award-winning John Corigliano. Ms. Caluda’s recording, I dwell in Possibility, was released in 2014. Through the exquisite settings of Emmy Award-winning John Musto, Hartt’s own Larry Alan Smith and Juliana Hall, she brings the words of American women poets to life. The composers are also featured on the piano performing their pieces with her. The American Record Guide proclaimed that her “singing is exquisite; she never loses the dramatic or vocal line, and her diction is excellent.”

The Met: Live in HD 2022-23 season is generously supported by Nancy R. Wadhams.
