Internationally known soprano Karen Clift got her start in Minnesota. She made her professional debut with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra several years ago, and sang Mozart with the Minnesota Orchestra.

Now living in Wyoming, she's back in the Twin Cities this week for performances with the Schubert Club's Summer Song Festival.

Clift stopped by Minnnesota Public Radio's Maud Moon Weyerhauser Studio with pianist Timothy Lovelace to perform songs by Benjamin Britten and Clara Schumann.

Clift also spoke with classical music host Steve Staruch about what it takes to put together a good recital program.
