C&V Scene and Heard
On Sunday, September 26th at 3pm EDT in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, The American Opera Project (AOP) will present C&V SCENE AND HEARD, a live outdoor showcase of opera scenes from five emerging composers who created the works during their fellowships in AOP’s opera writing program Composers & the Voice (C&V). General admission tickets are available via Eventbrite for $25.
C&V SCENE AND HEARD showcases opera scenes from five emerging composers - Matt Frey, Alaina Ferris, Michael Lanci, Mary Prescott, and Jessica Rudman - who created the works during their fellowships in AOP’s opera writing program Composers & the Voice (C&V).
