    Four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald currently stars in the hit ABC television series Private Practice. In addition to her television and theatrical work, the two-time Grammy Award winner maintains a career as a concert and recording artist, appearing regularly on the great stages of the world. In the 2010-2011 season, she participates in the gala festivities to celebrate the opening of the New World Symphony’s new Frank Gehry-designed concert hall in Miami, and appears in concert at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and at Sundance. Last season, Ms. McDonald appeared in solo concerts with The Philadelphia Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, and celebrated Stephen Sondheim’s 80th birthday with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia and with the New York Philharmonic in a gala filmed for television broadcast and a DVD release. She was also invited to sing for President and Mrs. Obama in A Broadway Celebration: In Performance at the White House, which was later televised on PBS.

    Ms. McDonald has sung regularly with all the major American orchestras, including the New York and Los Angeles philharmonics, San Francisco Symphony, the Cleveland and Philadelphia orchestras, and the Boston, Chicago, and National symphony orchestras, under many of the world’s greatest conductors, such as Sir Simon Rattle, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Leonard Slatkin, and Michael Tilson Thomas. In the spring of 2005, she “previewed” a scene from John Adams’s not-yet-premiered opera Doctor Atomic, with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by the composer. Overseas, she is a returning guest at the BBC Proms (where she was only the second American in more than 100 years to solo on the famed Last Night of the Proms), and also with the London Symphony Orchestra and Berliner Philharmoniker, and at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.

    Born into a musical family, Ms. McDonald received her classical vocal training at The Juilliard School.
