Now that I have time to edit blog posts, I am delighted to share this on my website - I am one of 2019’s recipients of Opera America’s Discovery Grants for Female Composers! Librettist Amy Punt and I will be collaborating on a commissioned opera to be workshopped and premiered in the fall by Portland State University, with a performance following in LA in the spring! Link to the press release here.
Also check out the poster Portland State made for this coming fall - a friend of mine saw it the other day on the bulletin board and had to share. A confused and funny interaction ensued.
Stay tuned for opera musings and updates - I intend to keep everyone posted about my journey through this process!
