concert & recital selections

Because of software changes, our music player is no longer functioning. We are currently reworking the Music Room to make playing audio selections simpler and easier. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

These selections from live concerts and recitals showcase Beverly Sills' wide range of roles and vocal categories, from coloratura fireworks to delicate lyricism to intensely dramatic characterizations.

These live recordings, made under widely varying circumstances, do not have consistent sound quality and cannot compare to studio recordings. However, Sills' voice needed the space of the concert hall or opera house to make its full effect.
