World-renowned violist Paul Neubauer and acclaimed pianist Anne-Marie McDermott will be joined by one of the opera world’s hottest new stars, Susanna Phillips, for an incredible night of Songs for Soprano.

Paul Neubauer returns to the Camp Concert Hall stage having performed last season with the Shanghai Quartet, of which the Richmond Times-Dispatch wrote “…the five musicians played with a unity of expression and verve that the audience loved.” Neubauer is an Artist Member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, is the Artistic Director of the “Chamber Music Extravaganza” in Curaçao, and at age 21, was the youngest principal string player in the New York Philharmonic’s history.

Internationally acclaimed pianist Anne-Marie McDermott is an Artist Member of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and in 2011 was appointed the Artistic Director of the Vail Valley Music Festival in Colorado. McDermott’s critically acclaimed recording of the complete Prokofiev Piano Sonatas (2009, Bridge Records) led Gramophone to write, “we have waited a long time for an American pianist of this stature.”

Susanna Phillips, described as an “impressively gifted soprano” by The New York Times, is the recipient of the Metropolitan Opera’s 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award. In 2012-2013, Phillips returned to the Metropolitan Opera for her fifth consecutive season, performing the role of Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. Along side her many operatic roles each season, she is also an in-demand soloist and recitalist, performing with the Baltimore, St. Louis, and Alabama symphonies, among others, and at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the Kennedy Center.

The evening’s globally inspired program will include selections by Schumann, Rachmaninoff, Gounod, and Tosti, plus favorites such as It’s a Long Way to Tipperary and Roses of Picardy.
