Composer Sarah Kirkland Snider writes music of direct expression and vivid narrative. With an ear for the poetic and the architectural, her music draws upon a variety of influences to render a nuanced command of immersive storytelling. Upcoming projects include an orchestral commission for the New York Philharmonic and Tongue of Fire, an opera on 12th century visionary/abbess/composer Hildegard von Bingen–commissioned by Beth Morrison Projects, with a grant from Opera America–to premiere at Prototype Festival in January 2022. Snider’s third full-length album, Mass for the Endangered was released in January 2020.
