Program to be announced from the stage

Tony®, Grammy®, and Emmy® Award winner Audra McDonald makes her Mechanics Hall debut. In this concert, McDonald performs her trademark mix of hits from Broadway and the Great American Songbook. In addition to a record-breaking six Tony Awards— distinguishing her as the most decorated performer in American theater—she is the recipient of two Grammy® Awards, an Emmy® Award, and a 2015 National Medal of Arts bestowed on her by President Barack Obama. Tony-winning performances include Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill.

Blessed with a luminous soprano voice and an incomparable gift for dramatic truth-telling, she is as much at home on Broadway and concert stages as she is on film and television. As a recording artist, she has released six solo albums. Her training in classical voice at Juilliard has led to appearances with leading opera companies and orchestras around the world. For one-night-only in Worcester, McDonald will be joined onstage by Andy Einhorn on piano, Michael Kuennen on bass, and Gene Lewin on drums.

A soprano who can swing as freely as she can soar, McDonald is also one of the most stirring stage actors of her generation. She interweaves in musical numbers these divine gifts, dazzling us with her effortless vocal athleticism and assured musicianship while moving us with the exquisite sensitivity of her characterizations.
