This week composer Daron Hagen has been in residence with the Composer Workshop, a collaboration between Kentucky Opera, U of L School of Music and the Academy of Music at St. Francis in the Fields. During his time here, Hagen has coached three one-act operas and various arts songs. The conclusion to the week included the one-act operas performed in KY Opera Patron homes and a recital at U of L, open to the public. Classical 90.5’s Daniel Gilliam spoke with Hagen about being a working composer, a little about teaching and his new opera – Amelia. (Photo Credit: Ric Kallaher)
