Voice Master Class with Marlissa Hudson (T '99)

At home both on the operatic and concert stage, Duke alumna Marlissa Hudson made her professional debut while a student, performing "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess with the Baltimore Symphony Pops Orchestra under the baton of Marvin Hamlisch. She has collaborated with such esteemed organizations as the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, 92Y, Baltimore Symphony Pops Orchestra, National Philharmonic Orchestra, Choralis, members of the Arianna Quartet, and Vocal Essence.
