Songs of Lori Laitman, American Composer

Songs of Lori Laitman, American Composer

UCI Voice Students sing by one of the nation's leading song composers.

Described by Fanfare Magazine as “one of the most talented and intriguing of living composers,” Lori Laitman has composed multiple operas and choral works, and hundreds of songs, setting texts by classical and contemporary poets, including those who perished in the Holocaust. Her music is widely performed, internationally and throughout the United States (Carnegie Hall, Benaroya Recital Hall, Strathmore Hall, The Meyerhoff Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Concertgebouw and Wigmore Hall) and has generated substantial critical acclaim. The Journal of Singing wrote “It is difficult to think of anyone before the public today who equals her exceptional gifts for embracing a poetic text and giving it new and deeper life through music.”
