On this special episode of Resonant Bodies Podcast, legendary soprano Lucy Shelton (2015 NYC Festival) talks about her life in music and her upcoming 75th birthday concert on February 24th at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City. Lucy's recital is also a celebration of her 1979 recital which was one of the first in the Merkin Concert Hall space, and celebrates her many collaborations with dozens of artists, including her work with Jan DeGaetani, Elliot Carter, Oliver Knussen, Joseph Schwantner, and the dozens of musicians she has mentored as a teacher.
