The Front Row

Composer Joelle Zigman, Soprano Angela Schmidt & Artist Lydia Smith

Joelle Zigman and Angela Schmidt are The Front Row's two production interns, who are both accomplished musicians in their own right. Before they graduate at the end of the semester, we say “Thank You” for their service by highlighting a project in which they are currently involved. Ms. Zigman's Senior Recital as a composition student at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music will feature her Sapphic song-cycle, which will be sung by her fellow intern, soprano Angela Schmidt. The concert is presented alongside the opening of an exhibition by Rice visual artist, Lydia Smith. We hear music by Ms. Zigman and chat with all three artists.
