Leontyne Price Sings Gershwin's "Summertime"

Some singers are great, but few are so good they defy description. Soprano Leontyne Price - the embodiment of vocal strength, musical elegance and personal grace - is one of the few. In the video above Price sings an encore - requested by President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter - at her 1978 White House recital.

Jennifer Hambrick unites her extensive backgrounds in the arts and media and her deep roots in Columbus to bring inspiring music to central Ohio as Classical 101’s midday host. Jennifer performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Civic Orchestra of Chicago before earning a Ph.D. in musicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
