Well at least not tonight. Nor did she show up for her performance with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra last night, either. The vocal legend has been hit with “seasonal allergies” and was forced to pull out at the last minute.
For both performances, Upshaw’s pieces (Ravel’s Chansons madecasses for Soprano, Flute, Cello and Piano and Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915) were/will be replaced with Johannes Brahms’ Quartet in C Minor for Two Violins, Viola, and Cello.
Still no word on whether Upshaw will be able to perform Saturday night.
