Frances Pollock Selected as Chautauqua Opera Composer-in-Residence

FrancesPollockChautauqua Opera has announced that Frances Pollock (MM ’15, Voice) will join the company as the Composer-in-Residence for their 2020 Summer Festival. The 2020 season will see a re-imagination of the position, with the Composer-in-Residence being an ambassador, bringing compelling local stories from Chautauqua County to life through music and turning Chautauqua Institution’s gates into gateways. Partnering with the Chautauqua Theater Company’s Young Playwrights Project, Pollock will transform short plays created by Chautauqua County writers of all ages into compact new operas, to be performed during the Company’s summer season.
