Buried at the end of today's Minnesota Orchestra tour journal in the St. Paul Pioneer Press was the most significant news:
"Later, the news arrives that Dawn Upshaw, who canceled her plans to sing on this tour, has been diagnosed with breast cancer, which has been caught early and for which there are high hopes for thorough recovery."
I hope so too; she is a wonderful human being, and an incredibly gifted artist.

Yikes, this is very sad news. Dawn Upshaw has struck me as a great singer and a real class act. I certainly hope the best for her.
You can hear Dawn's wonderful "Saint Paul Sunday" appearance with pianist Gil Kalish by going here: http://saintpaulsunday.publicradio.org/programs/579/ . I too wish the best for this lovely person and her family.
