The St. Anne School Foundation is honored to announce that Grammy Award® winner Ana María Martínez will be the 2020 Gala, “Music of the Night,” honoree. Ms. Martínez is considered to be one of the foremost sopranos of her time, with an international career that spans the world’s most important opera houses and concert halls. She performs regularly at Lyric Opera of Chicago, The Metropolitan Opera, The Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera and Santa Fe Opera, as well as with the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Bayerische Staatsoper, Vienna Staatsoper, Glyndebourne Festival, and Opera National de Paris. Her busy concert schedule includes solo concerts, recitals, and performances alongside both Plácido Domingo and Andrea Bocelli. Highlights of her 2019-20 season include portraying the role of Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly with Opera National de Paris, Lyric Opera of Chicago and The Metropolitan Opera.
In addition to a full calendar of performances, she has recently taken on two new exciting roles that expand her presence offstage, including joining Houston Grand Opera as their first-ever Artistic Advisor as well as Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music as Artist-in-Residence for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 academic years.
