American composer, Larry Delinger, will be composer in residence at the UT School of Music until November 12th. Primarily a composer of film and stage music, Delinger will work with students, faculty, and guest artists and will also host talks, providing the Knoxville community an opportunity to ask questions as well as hear Larry talk about his music and his creative process.
UT students, faculty, and major ensembles will give concerts featuring his music, and Knoxville's Marble City Opera will present two of Delinger's chamber operas. Perhaps the highlight of his residency, though, is the world premiere of his opera, Medea, which will be performed by the UT Opera Theatre, November 7th through the 9th.
