INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED SOPRANO DAWN UPSHAW AND RENOWNED PIANIST
GILBERT KALISH APPEAR IN RECITAL AT BARD'S FISHER CENTER ON APRIL 27

ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.---"In today's commercialized musical world,
Dawn Upshaw is a voice apart.  She's one of music's most celebrated
sopranos, but with her calm radiance, you wouldn't think of her as a
diva.  Though she sings at the world's great opera houses, she has a
passion for bringing surprising, and fascinating, music to the public,"
writes Mary Kunz Goldman in the/ Buffalo News/.

The Bard College Conservatory of Music presents a song recital with
celebrated soprano Dawn Upshaw, artistic director of the Graduate
Program in Vocal Arts at the Conservatory, and prominent pianist Gilbert
Kalish, at Bard's Fisher Center on Friday, April 27.  The program
begins at 7:00 p.m. in the Sosnoff Theater.  Tickets are $55, $40,
and $25.  (Those age 62 and older are eligible for a 10 percent discount.)

Ms. Upshaw and Mr. Kalish will perform Stephen Collins Foster's
"Beautiful Child of Song"; Ruth Crawford Seeger's "White Moon," from
Five Songs; Charles Ives's "Two little flowers (and dedicated to them)";
Gabriel Faure's "L'aube blanche," from La chanson d'Eve; Claude Debussy's
"La Flte de Pan" and "La chevelure," from Chansons de Bilitis; Maurice
Ravel's "Le cygne"; Olivier Messiaen's "Le collier" and "Priere exaucee,"
from Poemes pour Mi; Robert Schumann's "Er ist's!", and "Mignon" (Kennst
du das Land?); Hugo Wolf's "Die Bekehrte," from Goethe-Lieder; Alban
Berg's "Die Nachtigall," from Sieben Fruhe Lieder; Kurt Weill's "Je ne
t'aime pas"; William Bolcom's "Song of Black Max," "Waitin'," and "Amor,"
from Cabaret Songs.  Mr. Kalish will perform Charles Ives's Piano Sonata,
No. 2, "Concord, Mass., The Alcotts," and a work by Johannes Brahms.

Dawn Upshaw has achieved worldwide celebrity as a singer of opera and
concert repertoire ranging from the sacred works of Bach to the freshest
contemporary sounds. A three-time Grammy Award winner, she has premiered
more than 40 works in the past decade and is featured on more than 50
recordings, including the million-selling Symphony No. 3 by Henryk
Gorecki. At Bard College she is Charles Franklin Kellogg and Grace E.
Ramsey Kellogg Professor of the Arts and Humanities. At the Bard
Conservatory, she is director of the new Graduate Program in Vocal Arts.

Gilbert Kalish is a profoundly influential figure in American music.
He was the pianist of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players for 30 years
and a founding member of the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble.  From 1969
to 1997, he was a faculty member of the Tanglewood Music Center; he was
chairman of the faculty at Tanglewood from 1985 to 1997.  Mr. Kalish
is a distinguished professor and head of performance activities at the
State University of New York at Stony Brook.
