POLAND — Nationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Emily Lodine will give a recital on Monday, July 14, at All Souls Chapel at the Poland Springs Resort, as part of their annual summer series. Accompanied by pianist Joyce Moulton, Lodine will sing American songs by composers such as Cole Porter, Leonard Bernstein, and George Gershwin.

Lodine’s artistry, silvery voice and mastery of many styles place her in great demand for both concert and operatic performances. Lodine has performed with many of the world’s finest conductors, including James Levine, Hugh Wolff, Nicolas McGeagan, Leonard Slatkin and Jane Clover. She has appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Philip Glass Ensemble, the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the symphonies of Omaha, Milwaukee, Detroit, Jacksonville, Indianapolis and Phoenix.

Lodine made her Carnegie Hall debut in Handel’s Messiah under the baton of conductor and composer John Rutter. She has recorded John Harbison’s Book of Hours and Seasons in which Gramophone Magazine called her work “felicitous indeed.” One of her best known recent roles is that of Julia Child Lee Hoiby’s one-act opera, Bon Appétit. Lodine is also a member of the four-time Grammy-nominated concert choir, Conspirare. Currently a resident of Magnolia, Minnesota, Lodine, when she is not singing or teaching voice at several Midwestern colleges, is on track to become a rural Episcopal priest.

Joyce Moulton is a piano instructor at Bowdoin College and maintains a private studio in Yarmouth. Her numerous performance credits include solo engagements with the Maine Chamber Ensemble and Saco River Festival, an assistant conductor and pianist for the Oratorio and Androscoggin Chorales, and music director of the Brunswick Choral Society
