Rising Stars Mark the 150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation

Posted By: Gail Eichenthal · 9/21/2012 3:32:00 PM

Is there anything more exciting than catching a live performance of a true rising star? Latonia Moore made a surprise Metropolitan Opera debut just a few months ago as Aida, and earned a standing ovation, endless bravas, and a mountain of bouquets. You can hear her yourself, on her way to great stardom, tomorrow night at our own AT & T Center Theater for a fraction of the cost of attending a full-length opera.

An amazing entrepreneur, John Malvaux, founder of Music Untold, has invited an extraordinary cast of singers and instrumental musicians to commemorate the very day 150 years ago of Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation. I am proud to be the host of the concert, which also features, among others, the great Grammy-winning artists baritone Donnie Ray Albert (unforgettable as Porgy in the famous Houston Grand Opera production) and legendary tenor George Shirley.

Get your own tickets here or at the door. Can’t wait to see you there!
