UPDATE: Gao Hong in Carleton's Music Department sent out this note today...

Emily Lodine, the Laudie Porter Guest Artist, sadly reports that she is not able to perform at tonight's concert.  She visited the doctor yesterday and her throat is inflamed and not phonating.  Unfortunately, the 8:00 p.m. Concert scheduled for this evening is postponed.

Hopefully, she will be able to return in the Spring! Emily sends sincere regrets to everyone but hopes to have some good news about a future date to perform. 

Distinguished mezzo soprano Emily Lodine will perform in recital along with accompanist Nicola Melville on Friday, January 16 at 8 p.m. in the Carleton College Concert Hall. Featuring the music of Bach, Bolcom, and Mahler—as well as Schumann’s beloved song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben, their performance is free and open to the public.

In conjunction with Lodine’s special appearance, she will offer a voice master class in the Concert Hall at noon on Thursday, January 15. Like the concert the following evening, the master class is free and the public is invited to participate.

Lodine has appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Philip Glass Ensemble, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the symphonies of Omaha, Milwaukee, Detroit, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, and Phoenix. She made her Carnegie Hall debut in Handel’s Messiah under conductor and composer John Rutter and is a member of the Grammy-nominated group Conspirare. Her many operatic performances include Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia with Lyric Opera Cleveland, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly with Anchorage Opera, and Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro with Opera Grand Rapids. Lodine graduated magma cum laude from Indiana University with a degree in music theory and is the recipient of a Pi Kappa Lambda scholarship and numerous Margaret Hillis fellowships.

Melville is an assistant professor of music at Carleton College. She received the BM from the Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand and the MM, DMA, and the Performers Certificate from the Eastman School of Music. Melville has commissioned and premiered many works by composers in the United States and her native New Zealand. She has recorded the complete piano rags of William Albright for the Equilibrium label. Her most recent CD, released on Innova Recordings, features thirteen new commissions by award-winning composers from around the United States.

The Carleton College Concert Hall is located at First Street and Winona Street in Northfield. For more information or disability accommodations, contact the music department at (507) 222-4475.
