Pulitzer for Central Park 5!

I’m thrilled that my teacher, Anthony Davis, received the Pulitzer Prize for his opera The Central Park Five! I performed on the premieres last summer and wrote a post here about how powerful a work it was, as well as how Anthony had changed my understanding of Duke Ellington’s music and so much more when I studied with him 20 years ago. Especially given the many obstacles that Anthony has faced trying to get his operas produced, it’s fantastic to see him get this long overdue recognition.
