World-class soprano Ann Toomey blew the Emberlight audience away last summer as she effortlessly skipped from Puccini to Celine Dion to Journey in minutes. This season she’s back by popular demand as guest headliner for one of Emberlight’s 2023 Main Stage concerts!

This one-night-only recital-style event will feature a mix of opera and classical music with some popular songs sprinkled in. Joined by pianist Madeline Slettedahl, Ann‘s sparkling personality and rich, memorable voice are sure to captivate audiences once again in this elegant evening of gorgeous music.

Ann is a former member of the Ryan Opera Center at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, a 2016 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions national semifinalist and 2019 Richard F. Gold Career Grant Recipient. She made her European debut, to critical acclaim, performing the title role in Suor Angelica at the Berlin Philharmonie. In the 2022-2023 season she appeared at the Wolf Trap Opera, Detroit Opera, and The Metropolitan Opera.
