She also makes her debuts with the Orchestra de Paris, the Betroth Festival, and the Milwaukee, Puerto Rico and New Mexico Symphonies. DeYoung’s most recent recording, Les Troynes, with Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra, won the 2001 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Album and Best Opera Recording.
