One of America's greatest singers of the art song, lyric soprano
Dawn Upshaw is admired across the globe for her uncommon
musicality and distinctive vocal beauty. "Everything she sings
is sacred," hails the Boston Herald, while the New York Times
says, "her radiant voice is at the constant service of a poetic
imagination. She has the gift to create each new thought as if
it were coming to life within her." Applauded for her portrayals
of the great Mozart roles in opera houses from New York to
Salzburg, Dawn Upshaw is also a consummate recitalist and
recording soloist—partnering with the likes of James Levine,
Richard Goode, and John Harbison for dazzling performances of
classic and contemporary works. Equally at home with Debussy,
Gershwin, or Broadway showtunes, the two-time Grammy® winner
brings her eclectic and exceptional musicianship to the Kennedy
Center for one night only.
