HAYDN’S THE SEASONS
South African soprano Golda Schultz is a rising star of her generation. She was a journalism major at Rhodes University when she began her music studies, later earning a graduate degree in music at the University of Cape Town and then spending two years with the Cape Town Opera. She is a graduate of New York’s Juilliard School, through which she was then admitted to the Young Artist Program at the Bayerische Staatsoper. Since that time, she has appeared throughout Europe, including performances with the Glyndebourne Festival, Musikfestival Heidelberger Frühling, Rheingau Musik Festival, Salzburg Festival, Staatsoper Hamburg, and Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Golda Schultz’s schedule this season includes debuts at the Dutch National Opera, New York’s Metropolitan Opera, and the New National Theater Tokyo. Recent seasons have featured concert appearances with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Finnish Radio Symphony, Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Schultz is making her Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s concerts. For additional information, visit www.goldaschultz.com.
