Soprano Heidi Melton returns to San Francisco in the SFP Young Masters Series

See also

The featured artist in the second concert of this season’s Young Masters Series offered by San Francisco Performances (SFP) is no stranger to San Francisco. As a former Adler Fellow, her achievements included both appearances with the San Francisco Opera (SFO) and concert recitals. For her SFP program she will be accompanied, as in past appearances here, by pianist John Parr, SFO Head of Music Staff.

That program will present a repertoire that is both diverse and adventurous. Particularly impressive will be the exercise of her command of Finnish with the performance of three songs by Jean Sibelius. The more familiar German side of her talents will include four songs by Franz Schubert and five by Richard Strauss. The program will also present two more extended compositions. The more familiar of these will be “Le Mort de Cléopâtre” (the death of Cleopatra) by Hector Berlioz. In contrast, the program will begin with Joseph Haydn’s Hoboken XVIIa/10) “Scena di Berenice,” a large-scale operatic scene that the composer extracted from the libretto Antigono by Pietro Metastasio.

This concert will take place at 2 p.m. on Sunday, January 26, in the Concert Hall of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (50 Oak Street, a short walk from the Van Ness Muni station). All single tickets are available for $40. These may be purchased through the event page for the recital on the SFP Web site. SFP may be reached at 415-398-6449 for further information.
