Joyce DiDonato stays a Virgin for the long haul

The magnificent mezzo-soprano Joyce Di Donato has renewed her longterm record contract with Virgin Classics, shrugging off interest from rivals. Virgin is part of wobbly EMI, but there’s nothing uncertain about Joyce. Loyal to her label allies, she’s in for the duration. 

Virgin chief Alain Lanceron said:  “I’m very
happy with Joyce’s confidence in EMI/Virgin Classics and that the wonderful
adventure we embarked upon some years ago will continue with many other
remarkable projects.  Since her first recordings with Virgin Classics, Joyce’s
fame has grown internationally and we are very proud that she is now one of the
most sought after opera singers.”

And it’s not all glamour, you’ll be pleased to know. She’s playing Wichita, Kansas, next week before heading back to the Met.
