“If the angels in heaven really sing, please let them do it like Nassief. Her voice combines the best of two worlds: It has bel canto size, warmth and height, and yet is svelte, with a youthful sparkle.” So wrote the Leipziger Volkszeitung when Kelley Nassief sang Elijahwith the Gewandhausorchester and Kurt Masur on the occasion of the sesquicentennial of Mendelssohn's death. Her critically acclaimed and exquisite performances on symphonic stages across the globe have established her as one of the world’s leading concert artists. In season 2012-13 she reprised Bernstein’s “Kaddish” Symphony in her debut with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Kelley Nassief’s 2013-14 engagements include singing as soprano soloist in Bernstein’s “Kaddish” Symphony at Konzerthaus Berlin; with Richmond Symphony in Verdi’s Requiem, also with Portland Symphonic Choir; with Rochester Symphony Orchestra in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9; and with Nashville Symphony in Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony.
