Visit from Opera Royalty
Renée Fleming is the only classical artist to sing the national anthem at the SuperBowl. She is the first woman in Metropolitan Opera history to solo headline an opening night gala. The National Medal of Arts holder and multiple Grammy winner has performed at events from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
In February, she will perform at UNCG Auditorium, with a reception for VIP ticket holders.
The 2019-20 UNCG Concert and Lecture Series (UCLS) also will host “Hamilton” star Daveed Diggs. Best known for originating the roles of Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette in the award-winning musical, Diggs is a writer, actor, and musician. He has been seen in the film “Wonder” and TV series such as “Bob’s Burgers” and “Black-ish,” and has won acclaim as a member of hip-hop trio “clipping.”
