Dawn Upshaw — Still Rising, Still Shining


by Maria Nockin [Classical Singer, February 2006]

Dawn Upshaw is perhaps best known for her expressive performances of contemporary music—but the American soprano sings repertoire ranging from the Baroque to the contemporary, and from the recital hall to the operatic stage. Acclaimed for her honesty, her heart, and her deep commitment to the text—as well as her beautiful and elegant singing—Ms. Upshaw has been hailed as a maverick in the singing world.
