AOP's Composers & the Voice is a two-year fellowship for composers and librettists
that provides experience writing for the voice and opera stage.
The Composers & the Voice Workshop Series is a competitive biannual fellowship offered to composers, librettists, and composer/librettist teams. Created and led by Composers & the Voice Artistic Director Steven Osgood, the two-year fellowship includes a year of working with the company’s Resident Ensemble of Singers and Artistic Team followed by a year of continued promotion and development through AOP and its strategic partnerships. Since launching in 2002, C&V has fostered the development of 54 composers & librettists.
With each new group of fellows, sponsorships are named in honor of mentors and their support of Composers & the Voice. During the workshop session these “Composer & the Voice Chairs" make themselves available to our fellows for one-on-one discussions and feedback. Past chairs have included composers Mark Adamo, John Corigliano, Tan Dun, Daron Hagen, Jake Heggie, Lee Hoiby, Libby Larsen, John Musto, Richard Peaslee, Tobias Picker, Kaija Saariaho, and Stephen Schwartz, and librettist Mark Campbell.
