Renée Fleming is the people's diva

Fleming with orchestra

Renée Fleming ’83E (MM) acknowledges the audience at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre with Neil Varon, director of the Eastman Philharmonia (third from left) and graduate student tenors Joshua Bouillon, Matthew Grills, and Eric Rieger.

The world-renowned soprano performed with the Eastman Philharmonia on Feb. 20 in a benefit concert for the Renée Fleming Endowed Scholarship Fund at the Eastman School. The performance featured a range of musical styles—from opera arias to selections from her latest album of indie rock music, Dark Hope.

After the concert, Fleming was awarded an honorary doctoral degree from the University.
