About Stephanie Blythe in Concert
Accompanied on piano by Ryan McCullough
Opening the 2021-2022 season with a special concert by mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe - a musical and historical look at the words and songs of Johnny Mercer and those who influenced and partnered with him, from the early years of Jazz, to Tin Pan Alley, and eventually, Hollywood. Accompanied on the piano by Ryan McCullough, Ms Blythe will be sure to give us an evening we will not soon forget.
"Mercer’s extraordinary abilities as a wordsmith and performer cannot be underestimated, as the songs and stories will tell you. Mercer was a born communicator, who had an innate understanding of how to connect with his audience- a perfect subject for a recital/cabaret, my absolute favorite kind of performance, one that establishes an easy, person to person connection with the audience through shared emotional experiences." - Stephanie Blythe
Stephanie Blythe made her Company debut in 2014’s A Masked Ball as Ulrica, sang in the Company’s Verdi Requiem that same year, and returned in recital later that fall for We’ll Meet Again: The Songs of Kate Smith. She was scheduled to sing the title role of Gianni Schicchi last season, the first time the lead role was to be sung by a mezzo-soprano, but that production has now been postponed to the 2022-2023 season.
