Serena Benedetti

Serena Benedetti

Possessing an exciting versatility that is equally at home on opera, concert and recital stages, Serena Benedetti’s voice has been heralded as “a pure-toned soprano that soared radiantly in the high climaxes.” Debuts for the 2011 season included the Ludwig van Beethoven Festival in Warsaw, Poland, where Benedetti presented a recital of Richard Strauss lieder with acclaimed pianist JJ Penna, as well as the role of Frantik in The New York Philharmonic’s production of Janacek’s THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXEN conducted by Alan Gilbert. In New York she has also given recitals at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, Merkin Concert Hall and with the Chelsea Symphony, in repertoire ranging from Mozart and Debussy to Schönberg. Other concert highlights have included performances of Brahms Requiem and Orff Carmina Burana with Southwest Florida Symphony, Handel Messiah with the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and Barber Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Mahler Symphony No.4 with Eroica Ensemble, Memphis, Tennessee. She performed these works with New York’s Chelsea Symphony at Bargemusic, for which The New York Times praised her, “warmly lyrical performance of Barber’s ‘Knoxville: Summer of 1915′, a lissome, sweetly sung account.”
