CANDLER CONCERT SERIES – ISABELLE LEONARD- MEZZO-SOPRANO & SHARON ISBIN- GUITAR
Multiple GRAMMY-Award® winning guitarist Sharon Isbin has given sold-out performances in the world’s finest halls and has created over 25 recordings—from Baroque, Spanish/Latin and 20th Century to crossover and jazz-fusion.
In 2013, Rising opera star Isabel Leonard dazzled audiences as Rosina in the highly anticipated English version of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville and as Miranda (Ades’ The Tempest), which won the 2014 GRAMMY-Award® for “Best Opera Recording,” both at the Metropolitan Opera. She was the recipient of the prestigious Richard Tucker Award in 2013 and has performed some of the world’s most esteemed opera houses.
Isabel reunites with acclaimed guitarist Sharon Isbin this spring on a recital tour, featuring a dynamic program of works from Spanish composers including Lorca, Albéniz, Tárrega, Montsalvatge, and de Falla.
