"Singer Of Obvious Promise" To Perform At UPB

Soprano hand-picked by Marilyn Horne to perform At Pitt-Bradford Sept. 27th

University of Pittsburgh at Bradford

Award-winning soprano Hanan Alattar, who was handpicked by internationally known opera star and Bradford native Marilyn Horne to sing in her hometown, will perform a recital at Pitt-Bradford on Saturday, Sept. 27.

Alattar, hailed as “a singer of obvious promise” by the Denver Post, will perform at 7:30 p.m. in Bromeley Family Theater in Blaisdell Hall. Tickets for the concert, which was made possible by a grant from the Marilyn Horne Foundation, are $6 for the public; students are free.

For more information on tickets, contact the Bromeley Family Theater Box Office at 814-362-5113.

In addition to her recital, Alattar will be in residence at Bradford area schools from Sept. 23-26.

“We are so fortunate to have Hanan Alattar do her outreach residency in Bradford,” said Randy Mayes, Pitt-Bradford’s director of arts programming. “The Marilyn Horne Foundation can send artists almost anywhere since many cities vie for the honor of working with Marilyn’s hand-chosen singers, but we always seem to wind up with the best.

“Hanan Alattar is in that mold. If her success at the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall wasn’t enough, Alattar just finished a stellar performance at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony. Music lovers around Bradford have the chance to hear her at a fraction of the cost of what music fans in the Chicago area paid, and I hope they will take advantage of it.”

Romainne Harrod, a sophomore English major from Peoria, Ariz., took in last year’s recital by soprano Elaine Alvarez despite the fact that she is not familiar with opera.

“It was amazing,” Harrod said. “She was good. Not many people get to see an opera singer like that.” More.....
