Soprano Adrienne Danrich grew up singing pop with her father’s band, then developed an active opera career, and now simply calls herself a “singer.” “I used to label myself an operatic singer,” she told Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin in this interview at KRWG, “but that doesn’t encompass everything a singer has to do.” She performs this Sunday with pianist Djordje Nesic at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in a program that includes Broadway, opera arias, spirituals, pop and the premiere for her own poetry set to music by Dave Hall. Doug Weeks, music director at St. Paul’s, also participated in the interview.
This interview won 2nd prize for Radio and Television Interviews in the 2017 National Federation of Press Women Communication Contest. The award was officially announced and presented at the NFPW annual convention in Alabama in September, 2017.
The same interview won 1st prize in the New Mexico Press Women Communications Contest.
