Su Lian Tan awarded support from the NY Foundation for the Arts

Su Lian Tan (Music) has received support from the New York Foundation for the Arts “Artspire” program for Lotus Lives, a  chamber opera that premiered as a concert at the Manhattan School of Music, NY, 2010 with a production premier here at Middlebury Oct.2011. Lotus Lives celebrates the lives of three generations of women, with classical, rap and pop music within a spectacular video set. Artspire support takes the form of fiscal sponsorship, enabling Tan and colleagues to further develop financial and production resources by supplying strategic guidance, website and clerical support. Tan is in discussion with several venues for future performances and DVD recording including WGBH Boston, efforts that will be a focus of her 2013-14 leave.
