Songplay, featuring Joyce DiDonato
200 University Street
Seattle, WA 98101
Radiant mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato showcases her more playful side with SONGPLAY. The lighthearted program mixes Italian Baroque arias with jazz ballads and songs from the Great American Songbook, and features 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. "The perfect 21st-century diva — an effortless combination of glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent" (The New York Times).
