Joyce DiDonato

The Grammy Awards have announced that KC resident Joyce DiDonato will perform on the Pre-Telecast Ceremony Sunday afternoon, which will stream live at 3 p.m. Central time at grammy.com/live and cbs.com.

A mezzo-soprano, DiDonato grew up in the KC suburb of Prairie Village, Kan. and still lives in the area. She has performed in recital and in operas around the world, and has been called “perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation” by the New Yorker.

At this year’s Grammys, DiDonato was nominated for Best Classical Vocal Solo for the album Diva, Divo, her recording with Orchestre De L’Opéra National De Lyon, conducted by Kazushi Ono.

In this clip, she discusses the album, which features a mix of female and male roles from a variety of operas.
