Grants of $100,000 for 7 women composersmain
Opera America is trying to level the playing field.
It has awarded $100,000 to seven women who are trying to get their operas finished and on stage
The recipients of Discovery Grants are Kitty Brazelton for The Art of Memory, Laura Karpman for Balls, Patricia Leonard (pictured) for My Dearest Friend, Jing Jing Luo for Ashima, Odaline de la Martinez for Imoinda, Kamala Sankaram for The Privacy Show, and Su Lian Tan for Lotus Lives.
Although a press release was issued a week ago, no US-based media – either general, music or blog – has reported the grants, according to Google News. What does that tell you about the state of equality in 2015?
