The annual opera new work reading creates opportunities to highlight new contributions to the opera repertoire from emerging voices. This year, join members of the Maryland Opera Studio (MOS) and the women's chamber vocal ensemble Femmes de Chanson for an evening of music culminating the weeklong residency of Taiwanese-American composer, Justine F. Chen. Building on the long tradition of new work exploration, MOS performs excerpts of Chen’s recent and newly created works alongside introductions by the composer, demonstrating the remarkable depth and importance of this prominent compositional voice.
