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.


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.
