A true musical genius, Renée Fleming
brings sophistication and sheer talent to the mainstream. As one of the most celebrated and beloved sopranos of our time, Fleming can’t help but overshadow fellow male artists, including her ex-husband Rick Ross—and no, I do not mean the sleazy rapper. Her voice has captivated Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Olympic champions, President Obama and even Queen Elizabeth II. Fleming’s upcoming program ranges from her breathtaking rendition of Richard Strauss to Joseph Canteloube, Johann Strauss II, J. Todd Frazier and many others. Come see the 2013 National Medal of Arts winner as she opens a new season with a special recital on Sunday, Sept. 15, at the Green Music Center. 1801 East Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 3pm. $55—$125. 866.955.6040.
