Renée Fleming is one of the most highly acclaimed singers of our time. Winner of four Grammy® awards, and recipient of the US National Medal of Arts, she has sung for momentous occasions from the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony to the Diamond Jubilee Concert for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. In 2014, Renée brought her voice to a vast new audience as the only classical artist ever to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.
Renée’s 2020 schedule includes a Europe and US recital tour with pianist Evgeny Kissin, and she will bring her lauded portrayal of Margaret in The Light in the Piazza to Sydney, Australia, in August, having performed the role in London, Los Angeles and Chicago in 2019. Last year she also sang world premieres by André Previn and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Kevin Puts, and appeared opposite the actor Ben Whishaw to open The Shed at New York City’s Hudson Yards. She earned a Tony nomination for her performance in the 2018 Broadway production of Carousel. Her latest album Lieder: Brahms, Schumann, and Mahler was released by Decca in June. She was heard on the soundtracks of the 2018 Best Picture Oscar winner The Shape of Water and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
As Artistic Advisor to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Renée spearheads a collaboration with the National Institutes of Health focused on music, health and neuroscience. Her many awards include the Fulbright Lifetime Achievement Medal, Germany’s Cross of the Order of Merit and France’s Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur.
