Award-Winning Soprano Desiree Wattelet and Friends Ring in The Holidays at the Nicolet Theatre
Wisconsin native and accomplished operatic and concert talent Desiree Wattelet brings
her unique musical style to the Nicolet College Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 9.
The Home for the Holidays: Desiree Wattelet and Friends concert features the young soprano along with a talented ensemble of classical, folk and jazz musicians.
Wattelet has performed with symphony orchestras and opera companies from coast to coast and is sure to provide audiences with an unforgettable musical experience. The online magazine Opera Japonica called Wattelet’s performance in Elektra with the Austin Lyric Opera “outstanding because of her lustrous sound.”
Her inspiration comes from singers such as Lena Horne and Nora Jones but she’s developed her own memorable sound that has captivated audiences nationwide. Wattelet will showcase her signature voice and harmonize with her accompanying musicians to transform classic holiday tunes into magical musical masterpieces.
Wattelet’s awards include Concerto Competition Winner and Vocal Recitalist of the Year from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas, and Regional Finalist from the San Francisco Opera’s Merola Program. She received several prestigious music scholarships during her educational training and completed her Doctor of Music Arts in Voice and Opera at the University of Texas at Austin.
The concert takes place on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m. Beer and wine will be available at Bytes next to the theater before the performance. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online at nicoletlive.com or by calling (715) 365-4646.
