Joyce DiDonato, Cal Performances
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato returns with SONGPLAY, after her theatrical program, War and Peace two seasons ago. The lighthearted recital program mixes Italian Baroque arias with jazz ballads and songs from the Great American Songbook, a versatile ensemble of piano, drums, bass, and trumpet seamlessly connecting the improvisational spirit of Baroque ornamentation with the free-spirited charm of American popular music.
