Tulsa native Christine Taylor Price will make her debut at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on Thursday, as the soprano soloist in a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 4.
The concert is by the Juilliard School of Music's pre-college orchestra. Price, now a third-year student at the Manhattan School of Music, joined the Juilliard pre-college program in 2008.
Lorraine Nubar, head of the Juilliard pre-college vocal program, said Price "is one of our program's rising opera singers and we're so happy she will be the soloist for the performance."
Price first became interested in opera when she attended Tulsa Opera's production of "The Little Prince" in 2006. She later appeared in two subsequent Tulsa Opera productions - as the Shepherd in the 2007 "Tosca" and as the First Spirit in the 2008 "The Magic Flute" - and was a member of Tulsa Youth Opera.
