Free Tickets for Anne Schwanewilms Recital

available at Amazon
Strauss, The Complete Songs, Vol. 2, A. Schwanewilms, R. Vignoles
German soprano Anne Schwanewilms is scheduled to give a recital later this month, with pianist Malcolm Martineau, at the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater (January 30, 7:30 pm). The program, sponsored by the Vocal Arts Society, combines two of the singer's specialties, songs by Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler. Schwanewilms may be most familiar to American readers from her Marschallin in Chicago or from an incident in 2004, when she replaced Deborah Voigt in the title role of a production of Ariadne auf Naxos (Voigt had been fired for being too heavy for a little black dress that was part of her costuming). However, as one can tell from the audio embedded below (from a performance in Madrid), Schwanewilms is definitely more than just a pretty face, and her Strauss is not to be missed.

So, Ionarts readers, we inform you that Vocal Arts Society is offering some free tickets to this recital, available as long as the supply lasts. All you have to do to claim one for yourself is to contact Vocal Arts Society by phone (202-365-9064) or by e-mail (wowears at vocalartssociety dot org). Please do your part to fill the house for this remarkable singer.

Thanks for posting this info. I'm on a Strauss kick so I'm looking forward to the program.
