Hello Jerry Bowles,
Kyle Bartlett here, I am a composer and also the New Works Administrator for the Opera Company of Philadelphia. I am hoping you may post information about our Composer In Residence search (press release attached). In short form, the selected composer will be given free access to the resources of the Opera Company of Philadelphia, Gotham Chamber Opera, and Music-Theatre Group, for the purposes of learning and experimentation, as well as a salary of $60K per year plus benefits, for three years. For real.
The deadline for entries is coming up very quickly: April 22, 5PM Eastern time.
Here is the call for entries : http://www.operaphila.org/about-us/call-for-entries.shtml
If you have any questions or need more information, please be in touch.
Thanks very much,
New Works Administrator
Opera Company of Philadelphia
