Having mastered the bel canto repertoire, American opera star Joyce DiDonato is not one to rest on her laurels. For her latest musical adventure, the two-time Grammy Award winner has joined extraordinary musicians from the worlds of jazz and tango to create Songplay, an exploration of the universal language of music. Led by pianist and arranger Craig Terry, the band includes jazz legends Chuck Israels (bass) and Jimmy Madison (drums), as well as young international sensations Lautaro Greco (bandoneón) and Charlie Porter (trumpet). In keeping with DiDonato’s recent recordings, the Grammy Award–winning Joyce & Tony: Live from Wigmore Hall and Grammy Award nominee In War and Peace, Songplay is an all-encompassing celebration of music, in which there are no boundaries or rules. Join DiDonato for this joyful, exuberant evening that will shine a spotlight on the timeless nature of a great song.

“[DiDonato] is a singer not only of flair and power but of intelligence and taste.”
– The New Yorker
“Joyce sings and the world is suddenly brighter. She compels us to listen actively, to hear things anew.”
– Gramophone
