The public is invited to a joint concert of Northwestern music professor Dr. Juyeon Kang (piano) and opera singer Melody Wilson (mezzo-soprano), sponsored by Orange City Arts and the Northwestern College music department. The program highlights a variety of languages and musical styles, including compositions by Spanish composer Xavier Montsalvatge, German composer Richard Strauss, Italian composer Pietro Mascagni and French composers Georges Bizet and Camille Saint-Saëns.

“One of the goals of this event is to promote Northwestern’s vision for diversity,” says Kang. “We embody shalom, anticipating a restored creation where people from every nation, tribe and language worship God and live in harmony.”

Melody Wilson is known internationally as a concert soloist and recitalist. She has performed with the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Seattle Opera, Opera Theatre of St. Louis and State Opera Budapest and appeared with San Francisco Symphony, Dallas Symphony, Slovak State Philharmonic and Vienna’s Consortium Musicum, among many others. She holds degrees in music and Spanish from the University of Delaware and a Master of Music degree and artist diploma from the University of Michigan.

Tickets for the recital are $20 for adults and $10 for students. Children 5 years old and younger are admitted free, as well as Northwestern faculty and staff who present ID at the door. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit orangecityarts.org/inspire_events/melody-wilson/.
