Mezzo soprano Patricia Miller, associate professor in the Department of Music, is one of the featured artists in a performance on Wednesday, June 14, at the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of Natural History. The performance features operatic arias and ensembles by Giuseppe Verdi, Puccini, and the Italian baroque composers.

The performance is the culmination of an eight-week series of lectures and performances that Miller coordinated, which ran from April 26 through June 7. Among the lecturers who participated in the series was George Mason’s opera and music historian Thomas Brawley.

The performance is held at 7 p.m. in the Carmichael Auditorium in the Museum of Natural History, located on Constitution Avenue. A limited number of tickets are available. The cost is $16 for Smithsonian members and $22 for nonmembers. For more information, call (202) 357-3030.
