Claim to Fame:
Arleen Auger was an American soprano opera singer known for her melodic voice and interpretations of works by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Monteverdi, Mozart, and Schubert. Auger won a Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Performance in 1994 for her performances. Music critic Tim Page wrote that she was "the sort of artist whose work not only provided pleasure for her audience but also instruction for her colleagues by any standards, hers was an exemplary career. She sang beautifully for more than a quarter century, she sang great music, and she never bowed or pandered to public taste. She was an artist, steady and serious to the end."
