Join us for a special journey through the American Songbook by renowned vocalists David Pittsinger and Patricia Schuman, in collaboration with pianist Damien Francoeur-Krzyzek. “This is the Life” is a semi-autobiographical program that explores Pittsinger’s and Schuman’s life together—both on and off stage—with repertoire celebrating the life-changing musical events that have shaped their careers to the joys of raising a family. Both David Pittsinger & Patricia Schuman are currently performing in The Coronation of Poppea at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis through June 28th.

She has performed several roles including Alice Ford in Verdi’s Falstaff, the title role in Schumann’s Genoveva, and the title role in Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea.
