Notables - Ep 8: Anthony Davis Education Through Music Podcasts

    • Education

We had the honor to speak with the internationally celebrated and Pulitzer Prize winner composer, Anthony Davis.

Davis is one of the “great living American composers” (New York Times). Opera News calls him “a National Treasure, and in 2023, Opera America inducts him into its Hall of Fame. Davis was the first to write a new American genre: opera on a contemporary political subject. His X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X returns to the Met Opera this November 2023, 37 years after its sold-out opening at the New York City Opera. “X” has taken on an almost mythic stature as the first opera to seamlessly integrate the musical worlds of opera and improvised music in a compelling story about one of the most charismatic figures in American history.

We speak about Davis' musical upbringing, his unparalleled artistry, and his perspective on music's connection with other artforms and the outside world.
