Along the way, Upshaw sang in school and church choirs. She also learned to play piano and oboe, but in the end it was the singing that captured her full attention.

I’ve always loved Dawn Upshaw. This oboe connection must explain why, eh? Okay, I’m kidding (sort of). She’s one of the few opera singers that, to me anyway, can get away with singing popular music as well as opera and lieder. (Her No Word From Tom was what first sold me, but from there I’ve heard her sing Sondheim and, well, you name it! She’s always wonderful.) You can read the entire article here.

And she’s an attentive mother, too. She has won so many points …. ;-)
