Jessica Rivera: A Career in New Music
16 Mar 2011

Soprano Jessica Rivera's March 29 concert at Carnegie Hall—with pianist Molly Morkoski and Ensemble Meme—includes the world premiere of Mark Grey's Atash Sorushan (Fire Angels). The piece was commissioned by Carnegie Hall in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Here, Rivera reviews a career path that has seen her specialize in the music of contemporary composers—notably Osvaldo Golijov and John Adams.
