Join critically acclaimed mezzo-soprano, Carla D. Canales, for a concert on Instagram @carla.d.canales
Carla Canales has been praised by Opera Magazine for possessing a voice that “grabs the heartstrings with its dramatic force and musicality.” As a performer, she has won acclaim on leading stages around the world while, at the same time as an arts advocate, she has won recognition as one of the leading voices of her generation.
In 2014, she won the prestigious Sphinx Medal of Excellence, an honor bestowed upon her by Justice Sotomayor at the US Supreme Court, and a year later she was named by Foreign Policy Magazine to its annual listing of the year’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers for her work using music to bridge cultural barriers. In 2017, she was one of twenty alumni in the history of the institution to receive University of Michigan Bicentennial Alumni Award, and was selected for the Hermitage Artist Residency. She was also invited under President Obama to serve under the President’s Committee for the Arts and Humanities as a Turnaround Artist. In all of the above, she was the first opera singer to receive these distinctions. Most recently, Ms. Canales was named one of Musical America’s 30 Movers and Shapers of 2018. In addition, she has served the US State Department as an Arts Envoy for over fifteen years.
This concert is part of the Office of the Arts "Arts at Home" series, supporting local artists and the community.
