Alabama Soprano Susanna Phillips Wins Sills Award

May 10, 2010

Susanna Phillips, the soloist on Naxos’s forthcoming CD of Scott Wheeler’s Songs (8.559658), a 28-year-old soprano from Huntsville, Alabama, was named the winner of the Beverly Sills Artist Award, the Metropolitan Opera announced on last Wednesday. The award, for singers between the ages of 25 and 40 who have appeared in featured solo roles at the Met, has been given annually since 2006, and comes with a prize of $50,000. Ms Phillips made her Met debut last season in the role of Musetta in La Bohème; she has also sung Pamina in Die Zauberflöte and will reprise that role in the Met’s 2010–11 season.
