Soprano Indra Thomas will perform at 4 p.m. Sunday at First Presbyterian Church in Gainesville.

Internationally known soprano, Indra Thomas, will open the 2014-2015 Marvelous Music Concert Series next weekend at First Presbyterian Church in Gainesville.

The concert will be at 4 p.m. Nov. 2, at 800 S. Enota Drive in Gainesville. It will include repertoire from art songs, arias and spirituals. She will be accompanied by Gainesville pianist Sandra Lutters, whose career spans 30 years and includes credits as conductor, composer/arranger, vocal coach and accompanist.

An Atlanta native and minister’s daughter, Thomas grew up singing in her father’s church. She received her first widespread recognition when cast as the 19-year-old soloist in the Academy-Award winning film, “Driving Miss Daisy,” directed by Bruce Beresford, and based on the novel by Alfred Uhry.

Thomas is a 1993 graduate of Shorter University and Philadelphia’s Academy of Vocal Arts, with advance work at the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria. She has built a successful career performing in operas around the globe and is considered one of the foremost Verdi sopranos in the world today, especially in the role of Aida.
