January 4, 1937: Grace Bumbry was born in St. Louis

Grace Bumbry was born on this date in 1937.  Grace is an American opera singer, and considered one of the leading mezzo-sopranos of her generation.  

Bumbry’s voice was rich and sizable, possessing a wide range, and was capable of producing a very distinctive plangent tone.   She was particularly noted for her fiery temperament and dramatic intensity on stage. More recently, she has also become known as a recitalist and interpreter of lieder, and as a teacher. From the late 1980s on, she seemed to concentrate her career in Europe, rather than in the US. A long-time resident of Switzerland, she now makes her home in Salzburg, Austria.
