Up and coming soprano artist Adrienne Danrich will come to Tennessee Tech University’s Wattenbarger Auditorium for a performance Thursday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m. She will also hold a master class at 11 a.m.

Based in New York, Danrich has been declared as a future world-renowned soprano singer with a voice simultaneously unique and beautiful. Included in the program will be works by Giuseppe Verdi, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Francis Poulenc and Ricky Ian Gordon. Accompanying her will be pianist Tyson Deaton.

Danrich is an alumna of Eastman School of Music and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She has vocalized some of the most respected works in the world, including works by Beethoven, Mozart and Vivaldi. Her soloist debut came at Carnegie Hall, as she performed Beethoven’s "Mass in C" and Mozart’s "Mass in G."

Danrich’s debut in Europe garnered her as the Concerto Competition winner for her soloist performance in Mozart’s “Requiem,” in Lisbon, Portugal. She will soon make her stage debut as Micaela in Bizet’s opera, “Carmen.”

Deaton’s ability to both collaborate and coach opera and recital literature has quickly put him at the top of the list for artists looking for a collaborative pianist. He has served as a vocal coach and assistant conductor in different venues, including the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Deaton has coached multiple genres of opera and art song literature, from baroque to contemporary.

The performance is a Center Stage event and will be free and open to the public.
