Lori Laitman is one of America’s most prolific and acclaimed composers of vocal music. Her oeuvre includes two operas, one oratorio and over 200 songs, setting the words of classical and contemporary poets, among them the lost voices of poets who perished in the Holocaust. Her MOR premières include Holocaust 1944 (November 2000), Fathers (April 2003) and her first MOR commission, The Seed of Dream (May 2005). Cleveland Opera gave the première of Laitman’s one-act Holocaust-themed opera, Come To Me in Dreams, in 2004. In 2008, Laitman’s full-length opera, The Scarlet Letter, to David Mason’s adaptation of the Hawthorne classic, was commissioned and presented by the University of Central Arkansas. Recently, Laitman was a “Featured Composer” on Thomas Hampson’s website, songofamerica.net. Laitman and Mason are collaborating on Ludlow, a new opera based on Mason’s epic verse novel. Laitman’s music has been released on Albany, Naxos, Channel Classics and other labels. She received her B.A. and M.M. from Yale University.
