With a “silvery and thrilling” lyric soprano and “astounding coloratura”, Diane Penning has headlined in classical and pops programs with dozens of orchestras nationwide and recorded internationally. Pops programs exhibit her versatility in songs that range from standards to showpieces for coloratura soprano like ‘Think of Me’ from ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Glitter and be Gay’ from Bernstein’s ‘Candide’.
Renowned conductor/pianist Paul Langford, arranger for world class orchestras and vocal groups, adds a silky tenor to the duo’s lush duets and an elegant style at the keys. Langford has accompanied Grammy winners Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers, Yolanda Adams, Michael Buble, and Josh Groban, sung for President Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama, led orchestras around the world, is a published composer, and runs a state-of-the-art recording studio in Chicago.
