Husband and wife duo Soprano, Danielle Talamantes and Bass-baritone, Kerry Wilkerson are thrilled to present an all-American program of vocal selections featuring music from Copland’s iconic Old American Songs, original compositions written especially for their voices as well as cherished gems of the musical theater and American Songbook canon.

A prolific and versatile vocal artist, Metropolitan Opera Soprano, Danielle Talamantes can not only be found on the operatic stage but in the concert hall, and recital salon. Recently retired from the US Army Chorus after 29 years of musical service to our nation, Kerry Wilkerson has been described by the Washington Post as an “exuberant” performer with a “unique evenness in register”.
