International Opera Singer Solmaaz Adeli Coming To Chattanooga


American mezzo-soprano Solmaaz Adeli has been praised for her wide range, agility, the luster of her timbre. Her voice spans three octaves, her repertoire thus ranging from Baroque to new works by living composers.

Solmaaz Adeli, Opera singer, Recitalist and Concert Soloist, will headline a special night at the First Baptist Church of Soddy-Daisy this coming Friday night beginning at 6:30pm in a benefit for the Alzheimer’s Association of Chattanooga.  Also featured will be the Voices of Triumph Gospel Choir led by Marcellus Barnes, the Chattanooga A-capella Singers, tenor Harv Wileman, Heidi Foster,  and guitarist Kris Phillips.  

Solmaaz’s grandfather, Bill G. Hensley, of Soddy-Daisy, passed away from Alzheimers this past June, and she and the family wanted to do something to honor his memory.  The concert is titled “Great Songs You’ll Never Forget” and Solmazz will be performing “Ave Maria”, “Some Children See Him”, “White Christmas” and will lead the audience with “Silent Night” in closing.  Tickets are priced at $20 per person, $50 for the whole family, $15 for seniors and students, with children under 12 admitted for free.  Tickets include concert + reception + door prize eligibility.  Please call Pandora Gram at 423.802.3080 to purchase tickets.  Tickets will also be available at door and/or:
