Soprano Jessica Rivera's Remarkable 2018-19 Season

From returning to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra to giving the world premiere of Nico Muhly's The Right of Your Senses at Walt Disney Concert Hall, 2018-2019 was a banner season for soprano Jessica Rivera. In addition to performing orchestral repertoire from Strauss to Salonen, she gave an all-Spanish recital with pianist Mark Carver at the Society of the Four Arts and can be heard on the new release of John Harbison's Requiem with the Nashville Symhony on the Naxos label. 

"She is a champion of new composers, particularly of women, which is refreshing. And she has an impressive list of concerts with some of the greatest orchestras and conductors today. And she has the artistry to scale down that voice for the intimacy of songs. She even changes the color of her singing to match the content and mood of the songs — sometimes a deep, mezzo quality; sometimes light and delicate."
