DAWN UPSHAW - Featured Guest Artist and Master Class Clinician

Dawn Upshaw, Soprano, has achieved international celebrity as a singer of opera and concert repertoire that ranges from the sacred works of Bach to the freshest sounds of today. Her ability to reach to the heart of music and text has earned her the devotion of an exceptionally diverse audience worldwide. Her acclaimed performances on the opera stage comprise the great Mozart roles as well as works by Stravinsky, Poulenc, and Messiaen. From Salzburg and Paris to the Metropolitan Opera, where she began her career in 1984 and has sung nearly 300 performances, Ms. Upshaw has also created roles in four new operas. It says much about Dawn Upshaw's sensibilities as an artist and colleague that she is a favored partner of many leading musicians of our day, including Richard Goode, the Kronos Quartet, James Levine, Sir Simon Rattle, and Esa-Pekka Salonen. In her work as a recitalist, she presents specially designed programs of lieder, popular music, and folk music.

A four-time Grammy Award winner, Ms. Upshaw is featured on more than 50 recordings, including the million-selling Symphony No. 3 by Henryk Gorecki, a dozen recital recordings, and several discs of music theater repertoire, on Nonesuch Records.

Dawn Upshaw was named as one of the 2007 MacArthur Fellows, commonly known as the "genius grant." Upshaw was singled out by the MacArthur Foundation as a "master vocalist", a singer who "is stretching the boundaries of operatic and concert singing and enriching the landscape of contemporary music."

Dawn Upshaw appears by arrangement with IMG Artists, 152 West 57th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY, 10010.
