Night of Living Composers

Ask most people to name any famous composer and they will probably say Mozart or Beethoven – but new music is written every day, by brilliant living composers all over the world. How has the role of the composer evolved over time?

The life of a composer now is more varied than ever. Composing music for opera, theatre, film, television, video games, radio, advertising, education, community projects, local and amateur orchestras and choirs, art installations and private events are all viable opportunities alongside professional commissions for concert works – and that’s just classical music!

Join Lawrence Opera Theatre and the Lawrence Arts Center for an evening of vocal music by living composers that are both established as well as growing in the landscape of vocal music. This culminates into our production of the micro-opera “White Horizon” by composer and KU alum Lisa Neher. Based on the then controversial story of the 1893 Fram expedition to the North Pole. Directed by KU alum Matt Haney and current KU student and pianist Danlei Yang.
