Cal Poly Arts presents Audra McDonald
Audra McDonald is unparalleled in the breadth and versatility of her artistry as both a singer and an actress. The winner of a record-breaking six Tony Awards, two Grammy Awards, and an Emmy, she also received a 2015 National Medal of Arts from President Barack Obama. In addition to her Tony-winning performances in Carousel, Master Class, Ragtime, A Raisin in the Sun, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill, she’s had several television and film roles. McDonald also maintains a major career as a concert artist, regularly
appearing on the great stages of the world and with leading international orchestras. Following her 2014 sold-out PAC concert, she will once again transform the hall into an intimate cabaret club.
