SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY MAR 28, 2015

Sarasota Opera invites composers to submit works for a new opera for possible production in November 2017 by the Sarasota Youth Opera program, one of the most comprehensive programs in the United States. This invitation is open to any living composer and librettist, of any age, who are United States citizens. Submission deadline is Wednesday, September 30, 2015, at 5pm. “Sarasota Opera is dedicated to performing classic works of opera in a manner that is true to the composer’s intentions,” says Maestro Victor DeRenzi, Artistic and Principal Conductor. “In the years that we have been doing productions with our Youth Opera, I have found there are few works of substantial musical value for young people to perform. In our desire to increase the repertoire we are looking for music that is rooted in the classic music style, reflecting how that music is written today without the influence of other genres such musical theater, jazz or other popular idioms.” Follow the link below for more information and to download a submission form.
