Kathleen Battle Underground Railroad – A Spiritual Journey

08:00 pm - 04/14/2018

@ UW World Series

Meany Hall on the UW Campus
Seattle WA  98195



Soprano Kathleen Battle’s luminous voice has been called “…without qualifi cation, one of the very few most beautiful in the world” (The Washington Post). Yet what distinguishes her most is her almost magical ability to create an unwavering bond with her audience. Returning to Seattle for the first time in two decades, the legendary opera star takes the Meany stage to explore traditional spirituals and the writings of Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass. She is joined by acclaimed jazz pianist Joel A. Martin and local choirs The Sound of the Northwest and UW Chamber Singers.

"Battle’s pure soprano voice made for a stellar performance. Last night was an evening to remember."
— DC Metro Theatre Arts
