About the event
Lewis Spratlan, Professor Emeritus at Amherst College, has had a long and storied career, including winning the Pulitzer Prize in 2000 for an opera he completed in 1978.
Join us as we revisit Spratlan's extraordinary journey as composer and reflect on his life and legacy. This event comes at the 80th anniversary of Spratlan’s birth and the 10th anniversary of the world premiere of his oeuvre, 'Life is a Dream,' by The Santa Fe Opera. The program will feature a retrospective on Spratlan's works and career, which spanned opera, chamber, orchestra and choral compositions, interspersed with reflections from the composer himself who will be joining us on Zoom. Whether or not you’re familiar with Spratlan's music you don’t want to miss this amazing program sponsored by Thompson Financial and made possible by a partnership with The Santa Fe Opera.
