Continuing a commitment to ensuring that the Chicago classical music lineup contains at least one major vocal recital each season, the 2016 Collaborative Works Festival's annual solo recital will be held on September 8, 2016 in Ganz Hall, presented in collaboration with Roosevelt University’s Chicago College for the Performing Arts.
This year’s solo recital headliner will be 2016 Beverly Sills Award Winning soprano, Ailyn Pérez. Widely known as an opera superstar who frequents stages such as the Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, San Francisco Opera, Bavarian State Opera, and Salzburg Festival, Perez' album recital debut – Poème d’un jour, a program of French and Italian songs on the Opus Arte label – was released to rave reviews; the UK’s Independent awarded it a full five stars, while International Record Review confessed: “Every so often, a singer comes along who completely bowls you over.”
Pianist Craig Terry, who is also the music director of the Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, will be Pérez' recital partner.
