Over the past 30 years, Natalie Merchant's distinctive voice, gift for storytelling through music and unique stage presence have earned her a place among America's most respected artists. She joins the Symphony for selections from her latest album, Leave Your Sleep, plus favorites from her solo career and days with 10,000 Maniacs. "Merchant has found her medium," enthused The Boston Globe of this exhilarating symphonic program. "[She] has never sounded quite so right."
