Happy Birthday, Renee!

February 14 is not only Valentine’s Day, it is the birthday of one of America’s great singers, soprano — and Eastman graduate — Renee Fleming (MM ’83). Anybody who follows classical music is well aware of Renee’s busy international career, but we thought it was worth noting that this month alone — in fact, in the same week — she not only sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl before an audience of 11.5 million people, but also triumphed at the Metropolitan Opera in one of her signature roles, Dvorak’s Rusalka. Brava!
