Guest Artist: Camille Zamora & The Mambo Kings

Events:

In collaboration with artists ranging from Plácido Domingo to Sting, Camille Zamora has garnered acclaimed for her “dramatic and nuanced” (The New York Times) intepretations of repertoire ranging from Mozart to tango. Equally at home in concert, recital, and on the operatic stage, Camille is known for her “dignity and glowing sound” (The New York Times) in “luminous, transcendently lyrical” performances (Opera News) that “combine gentility and emotional fire” (Houston Chronicle). The past season featured her Kennedy Center debut, performances at the US Capitol with Yo-Yo Ma, concerts of classic tango with Fort Worth Symphony and Florida Orchestra, and five new operatic roles, including the tour de force double-bill of La Voix Humaine and I Pagliacci with Opera Columbus. She also re-created the principal soprano role of Lucia in Hindemith’s The Long Christmas Dinner with American Symphony Orchestra at Lincoln Center, the live recording of which topped the New York Times’ Classical Playlist and was chosen one of Opera News’ Best Recordings of the Year for 2016. Other highlights include music of Granados with Yo-Yo Ma and Cristina Pato in The Music of Strangers, the 2016 documentary film by Academy Award winner Morgan Neville about Yo-Yo Ma and his musical collaborators; American Songbook classics with Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste for the Spring 2016 opening concert of NYC’s new Steinway Hall; Twin Spirits: Robert and Clara Schumann with Sting and Joshua Bell at Lincoln Center and LA’s Music Center; Mozart heroines with Boston Lyric Opera, Anchorage Opera, Glimmerglass Opera, and Virginia Opera; performances with Orchestra of St. Luke’s, London Symphony Orchestra, and Guadalajara Symphony; live recital broadcasts on NPR, BBC Radio, Deutsche Radio, and Sirius XM; and the title role in Anna Bolena, of which the Houston Chronicle wrote, “Camille Zamora digs deep into Anna Bolena with the richness of her colorful and unwaveringly powerful soprano instrument… a consummate actress whose ability to get inside her character is phenomenal.” A champion of zarzuela, Camille has been cited by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and NBC Latino as a leading interpreter of classical Spanish vocal repertoire. A Kennedy Center Citizen Artist, Camille is a graduate of The Juilliard School, the Co-Founder of the arts non-profit Sing for Hope, and one of CNN ’s Most Intriguing People.
