Every semester, we find outstanding vocalists to perform the national anthem and to lead the audience in the UT Alma Mater. For the Spring 2018 Graduate Hooding Ceremony, we are honored to have Emily Simmons as our soloist. She will be performing at the ceremony on May 10 at Thompson Boling Arena.
Emily Simmons, soprano, graduates in the Spring of 2018 with a Master of Music in vocal performance. During her time with UT Opera Theatre she has been featured in roles such as Countess Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro), Abigail Williams (The Crucible), and Fortuna/Giunone (Il ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria). Emily is proud to be a Vol!
