Under Construction Series: Lauren Flanigan

“Mesmerizing, poignant … her gleaming voice soar[s]”
The New York Times

Following her residency in 2012, soprano Lauren Flanigan returns to the Armory with her amazing ensemble to expand upon her work on the unknown songs of Kurt Weill with filmmaker James Mathew Daniel, stage director Kevin Newbury, accordionist William Schimmel, violist Julie Goodale, and pianist Christopher Cooley.

Lauren Flanigan has enjoyed a 30-year career that includes performances at the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala, Glyndebourne, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and New York City Opera. She has been featured in 10 world premieres, 11 CDs, five Live from Lincoln Center telecasts, one major motion picture, and has received 15 awards for her musical and humanitarian work. In 2002, Carnegie Hall commissioned composer Phillip Glass to write Symphony No. 6, Plutonian Ode for her. She started Comfort Ye …, now in its 20th year, an annual musical event to raise food and awareness for New York’s homeless. She is the founder and director of Music and Mentoring, a not-for-profit organization providing hands-on mentoring and full room and board to students studying in the arts in New York City.


The Under Construction Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
