Michael Capasso presents the Gershwins' Porgy and Bess
TALEESHA JANINE SCOTT (Funeral Solo Soprano/Clara Understudy) has earned much public acclaim for her professionalism, beauty of sound, sensitivity, and acting. Completing an internship in Spoleto, Italy, she is currently a soloist with the NYC chamber ensemble Opus Nine. Performing roles such as Lucy in Treemonisha (Joplin), Naiad in Ariadne auf Naxos (R. Strauss), and Nannetta in Falstaff (Verdi), she has been hailed by The Baltimore Sun as "[going] well beyond... revealing a delicious shimmer to her voice and telling nuance in her voice and her phrasing." Buffalo, NY native, Ms. Scott holds degrees from the Peabody and New England Conservatories of Music. www.taleeshajaninescott.com.
