20min 3sec : In studio with Susanna Phillips

As a high school student in Huntsville, Alabama, Susanna Phillips never once considered a career as an opera singer. A school guidance counselor encouraged her to just apply to a conservatory. So she did. The Juilliard-trained soprano is now appearing on major opera stages all over the world, gracing the pages of Vogue magazine and chatting in the studio with host Fred Child about her surprising, overwhelming success.
