January 25, 2017: Tom Cipullo, Composer
January 25, 2017
Composer Tom Cipullo stopped in to the FM studios today. He is here as part of the Baker Guest Artist Series at Syracuse University as they present a program of three short operas by leading American composers this weekend. Tom’s 10-minute opera, “Lucy,” will be included the program. “Lucy” is the story of “an elderly woman visited by a strange apparition.” Tom will also be conducting a forum and masterclass on Wednesday, January 25.
We spoke about the residency, as well as his opera “Glory Denied” (which opened Syracuse Opera’s 2015-16 season), and what draws him to vocal music. Eric Johnson from Syracuse University joined Tom and mid-day host Diane Jones.
