Ann Moss – Soprano
Cheryl Cellon Lindquist – Collaborative Pianist
Griffin Candey – Composer
A session to discuss not only how to ( a ) teach young composers to write effective vocal/operatic music, but also how to ( b ) demonstrate how healthy collaborations between composers and performers can help populate the field of opera with more vocally-satisfying music. How can performers help a piece serve its creators, its interpreters, and its audiences? How can composers help collaborators explore new material while respecting their practicalities of their instrument(s)? The American Futures team aims to help break the stigma : to help young musicians see the responsibilities, the joys, and the benefits of leaping into new music collaborations together.
