Leandra Ramm, Mezzo-Soprano
On September 18th at 5pm PST, 8pm EDT you are invited to a concert of beautiful arias and songs performed by mezzo-soprano Leandra Ramm. Invitation to a Voyage is a concert of Ms. Ramm’s favorite arias including works by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Rossini and Tchaikovsky, virtually accompanied by various accomplished pianists including Eryn Allen and Ragnar Bohlin. A regular performer on California stages, when the shelter-in-place began Ms. Ramm did not stop performing. Her most significant project during this time has been the debut of a song cycle by Grey Grant specifically composed for her voice and debuted by the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music. Ms. Ramm will self-accompany this entire song cycle live at this concert. (see full artist bio below).
In this evening’s concert, Ms. Ramm will sing from her welcoming living room arias and songs of her heart. This concert is inviting you to join a voyage; a voyage in classical music and her journey through some of the most beautiful music ever written. Relax, unwind, and be serenaded by the mezzo-soprano voice in an evening of classic favorites.
