Festival of American Song

Festival of American Song with Jake Heggie
September 30 – October 1
PepsiCo Recital Hall, Walsh Center for Performing Arts
Tickets $25, on sale Aug. 8

Named “U.S. opera’s most successful composer” by Opera News, Jake Heggie joins the Festival of American Song for two incredible evenings. Classically trained in piano and composition, Heggie wrote press releases for San Francisco Opera by day while writing art songs at night. When the general director of the San Francisco Opera handpicked him to compose a score for a libretto by playwright Terrence McNall, the triumphant result was “Dead Man Walking,” an opera that’s been performed on five continents and marked the start of a prolific career.

Survey Says…
98% of alumni felt that TCU helped them develop a broad knowledge and education, which they felt was valuable in their current workplace.

“My arts training taught me to be open and always ask questions. This allows me now to understand those different from me, especially living in a different part of the world. My clients often have a background very different from mine, and we find common ground daily through movement together.” – TCU College of Fine Arts alum
