Yvonne Freckmann

 

Composer Yvonne Freckmann has been awarded a 2014-2015 Fulbright Full Grant for the Netherlands.  She will be studying multimedia composition at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague with Yannis Kyriakides, and complete a “Wired Arias” project for singers and live electronics.

 

Etelka Róza Nagy, flutist from Hungary, gave the European premiere of Melampau for solo flute at a TEST concert at the Nutshuis in Den Haag, Netherlands.  Here is the video of her dynamic performance.

Opera Projects

This summer has been filled with opera productions new and old.  Thompson Street Opera Company premiered “Rootabaga Stories” – an opera in two acts based on Carl Sandburg children’s stories, and Fresh Voices XIV produced the California premiere of “Close Encounter of the Hillbilly Kind” – the fourth staging of this piece. Here are some photos.
