Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall
Bancroft Way and Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94720
Winner of the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, the sensational mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato has been called "the most potent female singer of her generation" by "The New Yorker". In this concert at Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley, DiDonato sings a moving program of Baroque arias that explore the many contrasts between the discord of war and the harmony of peace. Accompanied by the period-instrument ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro, DiDonato will perform works by Handel, De Cavalieris, Purcell and Gesualdot, among others.
