Lorraine Hunt Lieberson (March 1, 1954 – July 3, 2006) was an American mezzo-soprano, known for the dramatic power of her vocal artistry as well as her commitment to performing infrequently-heard Baroque era and contemporary works. Her career path to becoming a singer was unconventional – formerly a professional violist, Lieberson did not shift her full-time focus to singing until she was in her thirties. Her career as a vocalist would be shortened further due to her illness and eventual death from breast cancer at the age of 52.

“O suns and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
Octobers bright blue weather.”
—Helen Hunt Jackson (18301885)
