Five-time Grammy-winning soprano Kathleen Battle takes the stage to perform "Underground Railroad," and select seats are 50% off. The LA Times calls the singer "a beautiful woman with a lyric voice of pure silver and lively stage presence."
Discounted tickets for the concert on Saturday, May 18, at 8 p.m., at The Music Center at Strathmore are available in the following sections:
