CSC

This year’s “Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward” goes to Joyce DiDonato from the USA. In her programs, the internationally acclaimed opera singer conveys universal messages in favor of peace and humanism, and she is privately involved in diverse social projects. The 2018 award is offered for the 15th time by the Saxon watch manufactory Glashütte Original and will be presented on May 28, 2018 on the occasion of Joyce DiDonato’s performance at the Dresden Kulturpalast.

Joyce DiDonato is one of the great opera singers of our times. Through her programmes, the internationally celebrated singer likes to convey comprehensive messages of peace and humanism. Off stage, she has been a champion of social projects for many years, #whether in education or performing for the inmates of the high-security Sing Sing Prison in the USA. For her contributions to music education, Joyce DiDonato will receive the “Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward” during the 41st Dresden Music Festival. The award will be presented to the artist on May 28, 2018 as part of her concert “In War & Peace – Harmony Through Music” at Dresden’s Kulturpalast.

Leaving Athens with the fullest of hearts, having met these extraordinary - and I do mean EXTRAORDINARY - young men in Athens. They played and sang for me and with me, along with many other beautiful young people, and they deserve every single opportunity in the world. Thank you, boys, for bringing such beauty, joy, love, and peace to me! We will meet again! @alabrasabdullah @pouya.pouya.372 @vic_palazzo2004 #skaramagascamp @elsistemagreece

A big thank you to the #Halle #HandelFestival for the wonderful reception and for granting me the #HandelPreis2018. It was deeply moving to be in the birthplace of a composer who has given me countless gifts as an artist, surrounded by so many people working to keep his legacy alive and thriving. It was an evening I’ll never forget. 📸 @ralfpleger
