Soprano Larisa Martinez and violinist Joshua Bell present a new concert program, Voice and the Violin, an evening of beloved romantic arias and modern classics.
In a statement, Martinez and Bell said, “Our concept for the ‘Voice and the Violin’ program began during the pandemic, while we were quarantined and finding new ways to collaborate and enjoy music together. Although finding repertoire written specifically for violin and voice can be a challenge, we discovered and fell in love with these gems featured in tonight’s performance."
