SUMMER - Laura Auer

American soprano and singer songwriter, Laura Auer releases “Summer,” her 2nd of a four-part contemporary bel canto album series, produced by 3x Grammy winner Tim Sonnefeld in Los Angeles.

In 2022, Auer was inspired to record a large body of work consisting of romantic and heartfelt melodies from the classical golden age, to help lift her listeners from the day to day of the pandemic and revive the soul. Auer’s warm, stylistic vocals captivate audiences of both classical and mainstream music with her 21st century approach to French chanson, Italian arias, and the Great American Songbook, on her anticipated album series, Seasons. The collection features a mix of favorite classical and crossover vocal repertoire in unparalleled arrangements by London’s Broadway Studio Orchestra, as well as various performances by rising musical artists from around the world.
