The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is breathing new life into one of the most well-known institutions in the city. Last month, the DSO announced that rising star Jader Bignamini will take over as Music Director, beginning with the 2020-2021 season. Audiences will recall that the Italian conductor stepped in for an ailing Leonard Slatkin in 2018 for performances of Puccini’s Turandot, in what proved to be the beginning of a very special relationship with the DSO.
Heather Yanke Lunneberg (Wright Beamer legal assistant) was a part of the choral ensemble in Turandot, and you may have even heard a bit of her solo line in person or on the live stream! Heather’s passion for music grew from a very young age and resulted in undergraduate and graduate degrees in Vocal Performance. Now she performs as often as she can and can be heard with various regional ensembles, including Sounding Light and Audivi. In December, she will again join Audivi and Maestro Bignamini for performances of one of the most renowned pieces of classical music, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The program will be part of the orchestra’s 20-week Classical Series.
