Franklin Park Arts Center invites you to join us for “Music for Dessert”, a live music series for both in-person and virtual audiences. Praised as “darkly seductive” with a “smooth, rich tone,” mezzo-soprano Kristee Haney recently joined the roster of the Metropolitan Opera for productions of Janáek’s Jenůfa and Massenet’s Werther. Her genre – adventurous and versatile repertoire encompasses everything from core baroque and romantic roles, cutting edge contemporary operas, to jazz standards and musical theatre.
This concert will focus on her debut solo album, ECHOS. Driven by a deep-rooted desire to communicate, Kristee is a true believer that a good song is a good song, regardless of its genre or origin. Drawing from Art Song, Musical Theatre and American popular music – themes of love, loss and hope – we hear these ECHOS . They serve as reminders that while the musical styles might have changed, our human experience remains constant.
