Kathleen Battle’s soaring voice has carried her to the heights of the classical music world. The range of the five-time Grammy winner’s repertoire spans three centuries from the Baroque era to contemporary works, which she performs in the world’s leading opera houses and concert halls. Perhaps what distinguishes this luminous soprano most is her almost magical ability to create a unwavering bond with audiences through a voice that is “…without qualification, one of the very few most beautiful in the world” (The Washington Post).
“The purity and luster of her upper voice was simply ravishing.” —The Washington Post
"The distinctive loveliness of her tone was easily discernible...she was magnificent...with impressive intensity." —Los Angeles Times
