Internationally hailed as one of the greatest songstresses of our time, GRAMMY Award winning Roberta Flack joins the Symphony to perform a collection of her romantic hits including “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” “Killing me Softly” and “Tonight I Celebrate My Love.”
Classically trained on the piano from an early age, Ms. Flack received a music scholarship at age 15 to attend Howard University. Discovered while singing at the Washington, DC nightclub Mr. Henry’s by jazz musician Les McCann, she was promptly signed to Atlantic With a string of hits, including, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Where Is the Love (a duet with former Howard University classmate Donny Hathaway), Killing Me Softly With His Song, Feel Like Makin’ Love, The Closer I Get to You, Tonight I Celebrate My Love, and Set the Night to Music, Ms. Flack has built a musical legacy. In 1999, she aptly received a Star on Hollywood’s legendary Walk of Fame.
Make this Valentine’s evening one that you’ll remember for a lifetime! Reserved seats available at www.orsymphony.org/roberta or call 503-228-1353.
