Part of the 2012-2013 Texas Performing Arts Season

Stephen Prutsman, piano

Presented in partnership with the Butler School of Music

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.

Stephen Prutsman moves easily from classical to jazz to world music as pianist, composer, and conductor. He has written and arranged over 40 works for the Kronos Quartet in addition to having written for many of the world’s leading classical and popular artists and ensembles.
