Coming in Fall, 2018:
A short chamber opera for soprano in four scenes. An ageless woman, Molly, defends the headwaters of the Androscoggin River that she treasures, decries pollution of tap water, and describes the losses created by habitat destruction. For soprano, flute, clarinet, piano, violin, cello, audio and video. Text by Sheree Clement, with excerpts from EPA websites and Catherine Schmitt’s excellent book, “The President’s Salmon.” Commissioned by the Association for the Promotion of New Music. This work is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
