Lori Laitman Recital at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

On Wednesday, March 14, 2012 at 7:30 pm, I presented a recital of my music on The Shenson Series at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC.

I accompanied three wonderful vocalists: soprano Megan Monaghan, tenor Vale Rideout and baritone Randall Scarlata. Together, we presented a selection of artsongs as well as excerpts from my operas — The Scarlet Letter and a preview from Ludlow. Pianist Andrew Rosenblum made a special appearance in my very miniature opera, The Act. The theatre works were directed by Beth Greenberg.
