Event Details:

Star of Broadway, ABC’s hit medical drama Private Practice, and Disney’s new live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, Tony and Grammy-winning performer Audra McDonald brings her sumptuous voice to the lush orchestrations of the Toledo Symphony for a special evening of show tunes and songs from her latest solo album, Go Back Home.

Audra McDonald is unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry as a singer and actress. The winner of a record-breaking six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy Award, she was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2015 and received a 2015 National Medal of Arts — America’s highest honor for achievement in the arts — from President Barack Obama.

In addition to her Tony-winning performances in Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill — the role that also served as the vehicle for her 2017 debut on London’s West End — she has appeared on Broadway in The Secret Garden, Marie Christine (Tony nomination), Henry IV, 110 in the Shade (Tony nomination), and Shuffle Along, or, the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed.

The Juilliard-trained soprano’s opera credits include La voix humaine and Send at Houston Grand Opera, and Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny at Los Angeles Opera.
