The Couple That Sings Together

Date: Thursday, March 18, 2021 | Length: 70 minutes

Location: Raleigh Court Presbyterian Church

Spring is a time of fresh starts and new beginnings – a time when the cold of winter melts away and reveals a vibrant landscape of color.

Join Opera Roanoke as we shake off the winter chill together with a recital featuring husband and wife duo, Danielle Talamantes (Susannah ’17) and Kerry Wilkerson. Both are equally at home on the stage individually and together they bring a renewed sense of romance and passion to their audiences.

This program will be a limited capacity event to allow for proper social distancing and will be livestreamed on Opera Roanoke’s social media platforms so you can enjoy this concert safely in-person or right from your living room.
