Grammy-winning mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, dubbed "America's favorite mezzo" by "Gramophone" magazine, will perform Ravel's mesmerizing "Shéhérazade". Graham captivates audiences with her expressive voice, unusually tall and graceful stature and engaging acting ability. You'll also hear stirring renditions of Debussy's "Sarabande" from "Pour le Piano", Debussy's "Danse" and Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloé".
