Opera New Work Reading: Four Freedoms
Maryland Opera Studio
Friday, February 14, 2020 . 7:30PM
Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Grand Pavilion, general admission.
Inspired by FDR’s 1941 State of the Union address — the “Four Freedoms” speech — Joseph C. Phillips, Jr.’s new opera explores these four philosophical pillars and our relationship to them now.
The New Work Reading marks the premiere of the winning piece from the fourth annual UMD Opera Composition Contest. The School of Music’s Maryland Opera Studio and The Clarice’s Artist Partner Program established the UMD Opera Composition Contest in 2016 as part of their ongoing dedication to cultivating and performing new work that addresses socially relevant themes. Information about winning artists will be announced in the fall.
