Details: Rhiannon Giddens with Bhi Bhiman at Aladdin Theater

Rhiannon Giddens started singing when she was a little girl, harmonizing with her sister, singing folk songs with her parents, and performing with a local youth chorus, but she just knew she wanted to be a quantum physicist. She attended the NC School of Science and Math, where she discovered that reading about math and actually doing it were two entirely different things. During the summer of her senior year, she had the chance to go to a choral camp where she was surrounded by kids who were mad about music. It was here that she realized that music, not math, was her passion after all. She subsequently attended the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the music school at UNC-G where she fully embraced the world of the lyric coloratura soprano and, in beautifully made costumes, fell in love and died gracefully at the top of her lungs several times. It was not until she took a break from this world that she found the banjo.Today, Rhiannon hasn’t abandoned her vocal roots, but rather incorporates the aspects of her classical training that work best with banjo and fiddle.
