Perhaps more than any other soprano today, Dawn Upshaw is widely admired for her explorations in new and unusual repertoire. As she is honored later this month as "The Composers' Muse" by the organization Meet the Composer, she joins us to talk about bringing to life new works by composers such as Osvaldo Golijov and John Harbison.

Our blog: John Schaefer on Dawn Upshaw's knack for inspiring others.

Tell us: Do singers and musicians have a responsibility to perform, and even inspire, music from living composers?

I loved the first piece you played of Upshaw's. What was that? Really kool!

There aren't enough artists like Dawn Upshaw who can make so many connections - with different composers, conductors, songwriters. It's a testament not only to the versatility of her voice but to her open mind. Thanks for the beautiful segment.
