Four-time Grammy Award-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw returns to Texas Performing Arts after postponing her 2012 recital. Upshaw is a worldwide celebrity on both opera and concert stages, with a diverse repertoire that ranges from classic works of Bach to the freshest sounds of today. She reaches into the heart of music and text, drawing the devotion of an exceptionally diverse audience, and a list of awards and distinctions bestowed on only the most distinguished of artists.
