Wang Lu Selected for Chicago Opera Theater’s Vanguard Emerging Opera Composer Program

Wang Lu, Brown University Assistant Professor of Music, was selected to Chicago Opera Theater’s (COT) Vanguard Emerging Opera Composer Program.

Wang LuAccording to COT's website, the Vanguard "is a two-year development program that places an emphasis on building skills and connections for emerging opera composers in Chicago and the Midwest.... In addition to a survey of the canonic repertoire and detailed study of voice types, the residency offers access to operatic productions and industry events, insider knowledge of administrative processes, and ample networking opportunities. After observing the scope of the interpretative process by attending creative team meetings and staging rehearsals, the Emerging Composers collaborate with COT Young Artists and an experienced librettist, dramaturg, and director to develop a new full-length opera."

Congratulations, Professor Lu, on this accomplishment and opportunity!
