Richard Thompson Chamber Opera "Mask in the Mirror"

Professor Richard Thompson Composer/Pianist

Exciting news!!!!!!!
Richard Thompson has consented to an interview to discuss his new chamber opera: "Mask in the Mirror." The work-in-progress premiered informally at San Diego State University featuring School of Music and Dance vocal faculty and guest vocalists. Thompson has been working on the orchestration for approximately a year now.

Originally from Aberdeen Scotland, Thompson is an assistant professor of music in San Diego State's School of Music and Dance. He will take time during his national summer performance schedule to give us not only an inside perspective on the inspiration behind "Mask in the Mirror," but also reflections on his compositional process as a pianist/composer.

An excerpt from his official bio states,"His compositions combine European and African-American styles, so that the formal structures of European classical music develop ideas, which are essentially jazz in nature. . . his CD, "Poetry Prelude" of original compositions, was released in March 2006, on the Visionary Records label, distributed by Albany Records."
