Lori Laitman
Composer

Biography
Composer Lori Laitman has been described as "one of the most talented and intriguing of living composers" by Fanfare Magazine. To date, she has composed three operas, an oratorio, choral works, and over 250 songs, setting texts by classical and contemporary poets. A magna cum laude graduate with a Master of Music degree from Yale's School of Music, Laitman's music has been featured on Thomas Hampson's Songs of America radio series and website and in The Grove Dictionary of American Music. Her songs are widely performed internationally and throughout the USA, and her recordings have garnered exceptional praise. The Three Feathers, Laitman's one-act children's opera with librettist Dana Gioia, was premiered October 2014 in a production directed by Beth Greenberg. Laitman continues her work with poet David Mason, with whom she is currently developing Ludlow, a new opera based on Mason's verse novel about the 1914 Colorado mining town disaster.
