More About Toni Marie Palmertree, Soprano and Ellen Rissinger, Piano present “The Heart of

Feb. 11th at 7:30 p.m., Calvin & Janet High Center, Parmer Hall

Pennsylvania native Toni Marie Palmertree is a soprano praised for her tender, expressive voice (San Francisco Examiner). She has been engaged to sing major roles with leading opera companies in the United States, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Chicago Lyric Opera and the San Francisco Opera.

"The Heart of a Woman" is a concert of women composers, celebrating the tenacious women through our history who have broken the mold!

“Music is our escape and an opportunity to connect with others in an intimate way. We long to gather in the same space to share the magic that live music creates. The past teaches us that art is born from suffering, pain, loss, joy and hope. Through these trials, we emerge with performances that are even more emotionally authentic and beautiful because we have persevered through so much. For this concert, we’ve selected works by women who overcame the barriers and created works of art that will touch your soul and heal your spirit.”

Ticket prices are $10 for adults, $5 for Messiah University students (with ID), and youth (18 and under). To purchase, please contact the Messiah University Box Office at 717-691-6036 Option #1 or online at
