A Tempo: Nurturing Diverse Voices in Opera

Opera America last month announced the recipients of its IDEA Opera Grants for composers and librettists of color. A Tempo host Rachel Katz this Saturday (12/14 at 7 pm) speaks with Opera America President and CEO Marc Scorca, and the two composers - Kui Dong, a composer and professor of composition at Dartmouth College, who with librettist Monica Datta have created a fantasy chamber opera called Hu Tong; and composer Daniel Reza Sabzghabaei, who along with librettist and philosopher Yashar Saghai and librettist Mina Salepour are creating a work called The Veil.

Rachel Katz is the host of A Tempo which airs Saturdays at 7 pm.
