Forging a Composer’s Path in 2021 and Beyond
The arrival of COVID-19 in 2020 was devastating to the performing arts. An urgent call rang loud and clear to artists from all walks of life: adapt and create new models or risk losing livelihoods that took years to build.

Gabriela Lena Frank, a composer born with high-moderate/near-profound hearing loss, describes her creative experience and process. Her music often reflects not only her own personal experience as a multi-racial Latina, but also refract her studies of Latin American cultures, incorporating poetry, mythology, and native musical styles into a western classical framework that is uniquely her own.

Lecture followed by Q&A moderated by Professor Mark Russell Smith, Director of Orchestral Studies, University of Minnesota.

Sponsored by the School of Music at the University of Minnesota and a lecture of the Office of the President's Voice, Art, and Community: A UMN Series.
