Emily Lodine to perform solo concert

Emily Lodine, mezzo-soprano and participant in the Festival of the Lakes Concert Series, will present a performance of vocal solos during the Service of Holy Eucharist at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, in Alexandria on Sunday, August 18 at 10 a.m. The public is invited to attend.

Lodine's musical background and mastery of styles has placed her in high demand for both concert and operatic venues.

She has made appearances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philip Glass Ensemble, as well as the symphonies of Detroit, Michigan; Jacksonville, Floriada; Indianapolis, Indiana; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Omaha, Nebraska; and Phoenix, Arizona.

Lodine made her Carnegie Hall debut in Handel's Messiah under the conductorship of John Rutter. Her operatic credits include Puccini's Madame Butterfly and Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro.

She has also performed Vivaldi's Gloria with the South Dakota Symphony and Verdi's Requiem with the Wichita Symphony.

Lodine is a magna cum laude graduate of Indiana University where she earned a degree in music theory. She is also a recipient of a Pi Kappa Lambda scholarship and numerous Margaret Hillis fellowships.
