Rhiannon Giddens sounded understandably giddy the morning after receiving her 2022 Pulitzer Prize for music in New York two weeks ago. But the source of her giddiness wasn’t this banjo-playing singer and composer’s Pulitzer win, as thrilled as she is about being honored for her first opera, “Omar.” Rather, it was learning that her praises had recently been highly sung in Union-Tribune interviews by two acclaimed admirers of Giddens’ exceptional vocal depth and dizzying creative range.
