About the Artists
Italian-American soprano Lauren Libaw has been praised for her sparkling, “bright-toned” voice (New York Times) as well as her “warmth of tone and intensity of expression” (The New Yorker). She sings internationally in recital, opera, and concert at venues including the Opéra Royal de Versailles, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles, and Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room. A “masterful and affecting” recitalist (operawire.com), Lauren has been heard in song in Aix-en-Provence, Brussels, Florence, London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and San Francisco. She does not limit herself to any one style on the recital stage, often programming music from the Great American Songbook, contemporary Broadway, French chanson, and Yiddish theater traditions alongside classical repertoire. Recent and upcoming operatic performances include Rose de Mai (Le Val d’Andorre) pour Òpera d’Andorra, Adina (L’Elisir d’Amore) for the Théâtre Senghor, Cendrillon (Cendrillon) for the Tel Aviv-Yafo Opera Festival, Nannetta (Falstaff) for the Fondation Royaumont, Norina (Don Pasquale) for the Rye Arts Festival, and Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi) for Norwegian Opera’s Stage 2. Raised in Pasadena, California, Lauren is a graduate of Yale University, where she won the concerto and recital competitions, three academic prizes and the Sudler Prize for the Arts. She is also an alumnus of the Royal College of Music, London, and was a member of the young artist programs of the Aldeburgh Festival, the Aspen Music Festival, and the Fondation Royaumont. She lives in Paris and is an alumna of the FEU and Harriet Hale Woolley scholarship (2009-2010).
The music of composer and pianist Daniel Schlosberg has been performed by the Dover Quartet, Minnesota Orchestra, Nashville Symphony Orchestra, Albany Symphony Orchestra, Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, Lorelei Ensemble, Amphion Quartet, Aspen Contemporary Ensemble, and Antico Moderno, at venues including Carnegie Hall, National Sawdust, (le) poisson rouge, Royal Albert Hall, Detroit Institute of Arts, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the Beijing Modern Music Festival. Daniel received a 2014 Charles Ives Scholarship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters as well as two ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. His music has been featured in The New York Times and on WNYC’s Soundcheck. Recent projects include a 30-minute work for the Albany Symphony’s Water Music NY project commemorating the bicentennial of the Erie Canal, a fantasy on the music of Twin Peaks for the Dover Quartet, an operatic-theatrical adaptation of Federico García Lorca’s Once Five Years Pass for Williamstown Theatre Festival, and works for Chamber Music Northwest, BodyVox, the CULTIVATE program at the Aaron Copland House, and the Yale Symphony Orchestra’s 50th Anniversary. Daniel continues to perform around the world, appearing regularly with Chamber Music Northwest and NOVUS NY and collaborating with such luminaries as David Shifrin, Peter Wiley, Ani Kavafian, and the Imani Winds. He co-founded the composer-performer ensemble Invisible Anatomy, serves as co-Music-Director of Heartbeat Opera, and is a core member of the chamber ensemble Cantata Profana. He holds a BA from Yale College, MM, MMA, and DMA from the Yale School of Music. He enjoys baking cookies, and his work has been described as “richly detailed yet delicate” by The New York Times and “witty” and “ingenious” by The Wall Street Journal.
