Grammy® Nomination for “Homecoming”

For the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, Joyce earns her third nomination in two years for the nationally heralded collaboration with her hometown symphony, HOMECOMING: The Kansas City Symphony presents Joyce DiDonatoSinging Rossini’s daring, acrobatic Giovanna d’Arca and Jake Heggie’s ardent, moving The Deepest Desire, the combined efforts of this team electrified audiences at home, but also across the nation as it aired on PBS’s summer arts festival.  A “good news arts story” if ever there was one, it caps off the extraordinary rebirth of a symphony orchestra in middle America making astonishing artistic strides with the commitment of wonderful leadership and firm support from the community.

    Congratulations on your Grammy nomination, Joyce. Of course, we do not need such nominations to know the richness and quality of your performances, and of the warmth you show to all. I will tell Serge’s family about your concert in Brussels of Drama Queens. We have first-hand knowledge of this concert, as you know.
