(b 1955 )

Lori Laitman has been described by Fanfare magazine as “…one of the most talented and intriguing of living composers.” Laitman has composed three operas, an oratorio, choral works and over 250 songs, setting texts by classical and contemporary poets—including those who perished in the Holocaust—to resounding critical acclaim: “This is music of depth and richness that connects with the soul.” (American Record Guide). Her MOR premières include Holocaust 1944 (November 2000) and four MOR commissions: Fathers (April 2003), The Seed of Dream (May 2005), Vedem (May 2010) and In Sleep The World Is Yours (May 2014). A magna cum laude Yale graduate with an MM from Yale’s School of Music, Laitman was featured on Thomas Hampson’s Song of America radio series and website. Her songs are widely performed internationally and through the USA, and her recordings have garnered exceptional praise. Her opera The Scarlet Letter (with a libretto, based on Hawthorne’s novel, by David Mason) will be presented in 2016 by Opera Colorado.
