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.
