Description:
The Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech presents the Renée Fleming Recital on Saturday, February 29, 2020.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see a legend live on our stage!

One of the most beloved and celebrated singers of our time, soprano Renée Fleming is renowned for her sumptuous voice, consummate artistry, and compelling stage presence. Awarded America's highest honor for an individual artist, the National Medal of Arts, as well as four Grammy awards, she brought her voice to a vast new audience in 2014, as the first classical artist ever to sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl.

Performing in opera houses, concert halls, and theaters around the world, she is a recording artist with Decca Classics. Recent triumphs have included a Tony-nominated appearance on Broadway in Carousel, the opening performances at The Shed opposite actor Ben Whishaw, and the London premiere of the musical The Light in the Piazza. As a musical statesman, Renée has been sought after on numerous distinguished occasions, from the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to performances in Beijing during the 2008 Olympic Games. In 2014, she sang in the televised concert at the Brandenburg Gate to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. In 2012, in an historic first, she sang on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in the Diamond Jubilee Concert for HM Queen Elizabeth II.

In April, 2018, Renée made her Broadway musical debut in a major revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s "Carousel", her performance earning a 2018 Tony Award nomination. In a rare double-header for a classical singer, Renée was featured on the the soundtrack of two Best Picture and Best Soundtrack nominees at the 2018 Academy awards, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri", and "The Shape of Water", which won both prizes, as well as the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival. This fourteen-time Grammy nominated artist has recorded everything from Strauss’s complete Daphne to the jazz album Haunted Heart to the movie soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

Known for bringing new audiences to classical music and opera, Fleming has sung not only with Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, and Andrea Bocelli, but also with Elton John, Paul Simon, Sting, Josh Groban, and Joan Baez. She has hosted a wide variety of television and radio broadcasts, including the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series and Live from Lincoln Center. In both 2016 and 2017 Fleming sang in The National Memorial Day Concert with the National Symphony Orchestra, and she also appeared in the 2018 A Capitol Fourth concert, all telecast from the lawn of the U.S. Capitol on PBS. She has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman (famously singing the Top Ten List), The Martha Stewart Show, Sesame Street, Spectacle: Elvis Costello with…, The View, and Prairie Home Companion (as Renata Flambé).
