We are honored to welcome world-renowned performer Frederica von Stade to the 2019 Dream Flight Gala for a special performance.
Described as "one of America's finest artists and performers" by The New York Times, von Stade has enriched classical music and delighted audiences around the world for over three decades. The mezzo-soprano has garnered six Grammy nominations, two Grand Prix du Disc awards, the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, Italy's Premio della Critica Discografica, and "Best of the Year" citations by Stereo Review and Opera News. Further, von Stade was awarded France's highest honor in the Arts when she was appointed as an officer of L'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and in 1983 she was honored by President Reagan at The White House with an award given in recognition of her significant contribution to the arts.
