Upshaw Postpones Concert

From San Francisco Performances:
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – San Francisco Performances announces that the January 28 recital with soprano Dawn Upshaw and pianist Stephen Prutsman has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 7pm at the Herbst Theatre. Dawn Upshaw is withdrawing from upcoming performances in January 2012 in order to complete recovery after successful surgery to remove a small malignancy (unrelated to her 2006 breast cancer).  Her physicians have confirmed that the prognosis for a full recovery is excellent, and she expects to resume her performance schedule next month.
I'm sorry to hear about the surgery and the reason for it; wishing the great singer a swift and complete recovery.
