Composer Frances Pollock (MM ’15, Voice) started her own projects while at Peabody, creating opportunities for both her colleagues and herself. Robin McGinness discusses how Frances figured out prioritizing, the importance and ease of establishing relationships, and building understanding of the financial side of art and opera.

Frances’s Opera Earth to Kenzie will be performed as a digital production by Peabody Opera Theater, scheduled for this spring. More Info

Music at the end of the episode is France’s piece Honey Bees.
