Welcome to Student Composer of the Month, where we talk with a composer each month that is currently studying or has recently studied in the greater Baltimore area. This month’s composer is Frances Pollock, a graduate in theory and composition from Furman University and in voice from Peabody Conservatory, now studying composition at Yale University. She premiered her first full opera, Stinney, at 2640 Space in Baltimore to critical acclaim and multiple awards; the opera will receive its NYC premiere in January at the Prototype Festival.
Interview coming soon, featuring special guest Alexander Lloyd Blake, who will conduct the NYC premiere of Stinney.
