Listen to live performances of excerpts from new American operas by today’s leading composers, and join in lively discussions with the featured artist.
William Bolcom, winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Music, has composed in virtually every instrumental and vocal genre, from solo piano and songs to symphony and opera. A voracious eclectic, he has contributed substantially to the musical theater, cabaret and modern ragtime repertoire, and, with his wife, mezzo-soprano Joan Morris, has been a performer-advocate of American popular song. Bolcom is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts, a Grammy and six honorary doctorates, and he has been commissioned by organizations such as Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic.
