POSTPONED Colloquium Concert: Maria Jette at Bjorling Recital Hall
This Event Occurred in the Past.
This concert has been postponed. A new date has not yet been set. The Department of Music presents Maria Jette in concert as part of the Colloquium Concert Series. About the performer: Maria Jette began her professional life performing a combination of often excruciatingly difficult yet sometimes beautiful contemporary music and generally beautiful but often difficult early music. She rapidly branched out into other eras and styles and, as she likes almost everything, has now sung it. She has performed with innumerable orchestras and chamber groups, in operas, and at musical festivals throughout the country and abroad, as well as in her home base of Minneapolis-St. Paul (Minnesota Orchestra, SPCO, Chamber Music Society of MN, Lyra Baroque, Vocalessence et al.). She made many appearances on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion in its last 20+ years and has performed her own production of Rob Kapilow's mini-opera setting of Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham with festivals, orchestras, and chamber groups around the USA. For her service to new music, she was awarded a life membership by the American Composers Forum.
