There’s A Place for Us: Soprano Nadine Sierra
American soprano Nadine Sierra, 2018 winner of the Metropolitan Opera’s prestigious Beverly Sills Artist Award, has just signed on to Deutsche Grammophon. The daughter of parents passionate about music who sought a better life in the United States, Sierra’s debut CD reflects her own roots, as well as the experiences of composers from throughout the Americas, and a message that, to borrow Bernstein, states “There’s a place for us.” The soprano lends her warm, expressive voice to music we know well, such as the Aria by Villa-Lobos, as well as championing new songs by Ricky Ian Gordon, Osvaldo Golijov and Christopher Theofanidis. Nadine Sierra shares her story, her love of music, and her hope for the future, in the conversation with All Classical Portland’s program director, John Pitman.
