New notables episode!

We had the absolute privilege to speak with the internationally celebrated and Pulitzer Prize winner composer, Anthony Davis.

Davis is one of the “great living American composers,” according to the New York Times. Opera News calls him “a National Treasure, and in 2023, Opera America inducts him into its Hall of Fame. Davis was the first to write a new American genre: opera on a contemporary political subject. His X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X returns to the Metropolitan Opera and is currently on a month long run, 37 years after its sold-out opening at the New York City Opera. We speak with Davis about his musical upbringing, his unparalleled artistry, and his perspective on music’s connection to other art forms and the outside world.
