Our Voices: Lori Laitman “I Shall Not Live In Vain” — Eastman Opera Theatre, December 2021

During the pandemic, I worked with the talented students of Eastman School of Music’s Opera Theatre, Artistic Director Steven Daigle and Music Director Timothy Long as the students prepared video interpretations of my songs. Near the end of the film, Steven interviews me. Songs included are: I was reading a scientific article (Margaret Atwood); Swimmers on the Shore (David Mason); Men with Small Heads (Thomas Lux); Homeless (Michael Flack); The Butterfly (Pavel Friedmann); The Old House (Franta Bass); Kindness (Sylvia Plath); On a Photograph (John Wood); If I… (Emily Dickinson).
