Master class: Solo African-American Literature
Westminster Choir College alumna Soprano Laquita Mitchell consistently earns acclaim in eminent opera companies throughout North America and Europe. She has performed with the Los Angeles Opera, San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, New York City Opera, Washington National Opera, Opéra Comique in Paris, among many others. In her compelling debut as Bess in Porgy and Bess with the San Francisco Opera, Opera News wrote, “Soprano Laquita Mitchell, in her first outing as Bess, dazzled the SFO [San Francisco Opera] audience with her purity of tone and vivid theatrical presence.” She has since reprised the role with New Jersey State Opera, Atlanta Opera, Tanglewood Festival, Kansas City Symphony, Madison Symphony, Boston Symphony Orchestra and Cleveland Orchestra.
