The city oPicture 8f Philadelphia has produced some of the world’s most brilliant opera stars, thanks in large part to the Academy of Vocal Arts. Enjoy as many of them return to Philadelphia to celebrate AVA’s 75th Anniversary.

International superstar mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato leads a lineup of AVA singers, including tenors James Valenti, who debuts at the Metropolitan Opera in March, Stephen Costello, winner of the 2009 Richard Tucker Prize, and Michael Fabiano, star of the feature film The Audition, plus many more great up-and-coming artists.  This star-studded event will be one of the most high quality performances of the year.
