Opera singing songwriter Ashleigh Semkiw goes Underground at The Drake

I know, I know, I’ve been on summer hiatus. Don’t worry, I’ll be filling you in on the Art Life and Stilettos summer transcontinental trek in no time. In the meantime why not take a break from the serious world of classical music and check out some rarely seen crossover talent? No, not that kind of crossover…

Opera singer, and singer songwriter Ashleigh Semkiw will be headlining the Drake Underground on Saturday, August 18. Ashleigh is a unique artist, in that her most recent operatic performance was in the spring of 2012 with Chicago Opera Theatre in their production of Shostakovich’s Moscow, Cheryomushki, and if you’re expecting her pop stylings be reminiscent of Renée Fleming’s most recent pop curious album Dark Hope, rest assured that Ashleigh writes and performs her own music and is decisively marching to the beat of her own drum. You can check out Ashleigh’s music and art at www.ashleighsemkiw.com
