Crawford will also teach a master class on vocal performance beginning at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28 in the Egan Lecture Hall at the University of Alaska Southeast. People may sign up to participate or audit the class at juneaulyricopera.wikispaces.com/MasterClass.
Crawford has been described as "an exceptional new performer" by Andrew Porter in The New Yorker, and as "a fine-grained mezzo-soprano of remarkable agility with viola like colors" by the San Francisco Chronicle. The Washington Post characterized her as a "rosy, unblemished mezzo."
