As both a composer and a singer, Susan Botti has been recognized as “one of the fresher, more imaginative voices on the New York new-music scene.” When her chamber opera Wonderglass received its premiere in NYC, the New York Times also wrote: “...it was hard to know what to admire most: her music, her singing, or the theatrical flair and imagination she brought to both.”

I am both a composer and a singer. Though music has always been a major part of my life, my first love was theater. Through that training, I began to use my voice and eventually began to study the craft of singing — all kinds of singing — from classical to R&B to world folk styles. As a performer, I am particularly drawn to new works. This orientation led to my developing my own work and study of composition. With pieces like Telaio: Desdemona and Jabberwocky — I feel my interests in both theater and music coming together.
-Susan Botti
