    Dawn Upshaw; Dec 1st - 7th

    Grammy winner Dawn Upshaw has achieved celebrity as a singer of opera and concert repertoire ranging from the sacred works of Bach to Mozart opera; from Songs of the Auvergne to the freshest sounds of today. Her contemporary composers of choice include our own Donnacha Dennehy, Henryk Górecki and Osvaldo Golijov. Sample that repertoire all week on Blue.
