SAG-AFTRA SINGERS CHOIR WORKSHOP
What does it sound like when 56 of the best singers in the known universe sing your work?
This is an absolute highlight of my career as a composer (thus far)! A piece from my Psyche opera was chosen by the SAG-AFTRA SINGERS (LASingers.org) to sing at a joint event with the Society of Composers & Lyricists.
With their generous permission, I'm posting this video.
I live in Los Angeles with my husband, the composer Jack Wall. Our daughter Gracie Wall is at school in London at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (we're pretty proud). I compose musical, sung-through works for theater.
I co-created a performance work about the author Anaïs Nin -- Anaïs Nin: Unbound -- with director/choreographer Janet Roston, which was mounted in the Fall of 2016. The show got a raft of rave reviews, played to sold out houses, and was extended.
I'm currently working on my third opera, which is taking shape as a much more symphonic work, but will probably inevitably include a rock component as well, knowing me... I am currently composing this work as an Artist in Residence at the Coliseu/Balleteatro in Porto, Portugal.
I'll be blogging about this newest work soon. I am working under the auspices of The Rattle -- an art incubator with offices in London and Los Angeles.
My fourth and fifth operas are in the ideation stage now.
I've had numerous broad and deep careers, including rock and roll, technology, education, and the cantorate.
