American Highways

AMERICAN HIGHWAYS #37: DAWN UPSHAW, SOPRANO.
Guy brings us a tribute to Dawn Upshaw, the soprano with the silvery voice whose crossover repertoire ranges from avant-garde to Broadway.

Tonight’s show focusses on the American Songbook, with cheerful, nostalgic, sad, (and sometimes melodramatic) tunes from Gershwin, Weill, Copland, Sondheim, and Maria Schneider.
