A Penning and Langford Holiday

Diane Penning

With a “silvery and thrilling” lyric soprano and “astounding coloratura”, Diane Penning has headlined 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’.

Paul Langford

Renowned conductor, pianist, and world-class arranger, Paul Langford, 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, sang 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.

“Diane and Paul’s Hollywood program was an ideal pops experience: lovely music; perfectly prepared arrangements; beautifully presented and sung. A treat.”

John Varineau

Conductor, Grand Rapids Symphony

“Diane Penning and Paul Langford are the real deal! Whenever Diane sings, our audiences as “when is she coming back?” Diane has the perfect voice to present music from Broadway and Hollywood, and Paul is a perfect match for Diane. He has a terrific voice and his arrangements are first rate. They are so easy to work with – we put on a terrific concert with just one rehearsal. Our audiences ate it up!”
