Following her Nov. 4 performance with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra at the Peristyle, Audra McDonald is the 2017 Edward Shapiro Distinguished Lecture speaker.

Audra McDonald is unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry, as both a singer and an actress. The winner of a record-breaking six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy Award, she was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2015, and received a 2015 National Medal of Arts – America’s highest honor for achievement in the arts – from President Barack Obama. Blessed with a luminous soprano and an incomparable gift for dramatic truth-telling, she is as much at home on Broadway and opera stages as she is in roles on film and television. In addition to her theatrical work, she maintains a major career as a concert and recording artist, regularly appearing on the great stages of the world.

THE EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

DOORS OPEN AT 11:30 A.M. WITH SEATING ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS.
