Acclaimed young soprano Sarah Wolfson concludes this season of the Roche Visiting Artists Series at Mercyhurst University. Accompanied by pianist Renate Rohlfing, she’ll perform Monday, April 27, at 8 p.m. in Walker Recital Hall. The following afternoon, she’ll work with Mercyhurst music students during a 2 p.m. masterclass, also in Walker. Both events are free and open to the public through the generosity of the Terry and Margaret M. Roche Family. Wolfson recently made debuts at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall (as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild International Competition) and at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall (as winner of The Juilliard School’s Vocal Arts Recital Debut). She has performed with a variety of opera companies and is on the faculty of Columbia University, where she teaches vocal performance. Her recital will include selections from Copland’s “Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson” and Barber’s “The Hermit Songs,” along with works by Joaquin Turina, Kurt Weill and William Bolcom.
