Presentation by Dawn Sonntag — Opera: “For Life”

June 14 @ 7:30 pm

Dawn Sonntag's opera "For Life," with a libretto by Harvard-trained psychologist, dialogical therapist, and film director Kermit Cole, brings to attention the problem of iatrogenic illness caused by a for-profit mental health care system. This opera, which will be premiered online in late spring as part of the Cleveland Opera Theater's New Opera Works festival, captures the extreme, timeless, even absurd aspects of medication-induced infirmity. At one of the most significant moments of change in world history, at a time when peoples’ distresses are generally met with a misguided, often dangerous, response, this opera calls for a seismic shift in models of care and treatment for life’s inevitable challenges.

Presentation by Arthur Breur — The Community Connection

September 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Free
Arthur Breuer

Composers have tremendous resources in their local communities, some of which they might not even consider as available to them. In this presentation, Arthur Breur will discuss his experience promoting himself as a professional composer through his membership of chambers of commerce, and how that led to his orchestral premiere and becoming the Composer in Residence for two separate local ensembles: The Tualatin Valley Symphony and the Tualatin Valley Community Band. Included in the presentation are discussions of leveraging local businesses for patronage and sponsorships, as well as a mutually beneficial Composer in Residence agreement (freely available) for use with community ensembles.
