Cleveland Orchestra debut at Blossom Music Festival

August 3rd, 2012

“Conductor Johannes Debus, soprano Angela Meade and tenor Michael Fabiano all made their Cleveland Orchestra debuts at this concert which was a triumph from beginning to end. These performers are on their way to major careers. … Ms. Meade poured out streams of richly produced and focused sound, full in the lower register and powerful in the upper part of her voice, but with the flexibility to float pianissimo high notes. Earlier in 2012 Ms. Meade won the prestigious Beverly Sills Award given by the Metropolitan Opera. In these performances, it is clear that the award was well deserved.”

Cleveland Classical, Timothy Robson (August 2012)
