Juliana Hall has been named one of seven winners in One Ounce Opera’s 2nd Annual Fresh Squeezed Ounce of Art Song. Over fifty art songs and cycles were entered from the United States, Canada, Australia, and England.
Last year, the Inaugural FSOAS earned One Ounce Opera two Austin Critics Table Award Nominations, and was named to TRIBEZA Magazine’s Insider’s Guide to Austin’s Hidden Gems:
“Long before the three-minute pop song arose there was the classic art song — a short segment of poetry sung to piano accompaniment. (Imagine Brahms and Debussy as Bieber predecessors.) Bringing back the art song…, One Ounce Opera presents brand new pieces from emerging composers….take in the soaring vocals and unique creations.” –TRIBEZA, Nov 2016
Hall’s Music Like a Curve of Gold is a setting of poetry by Sara Teasdale for soprano and mezzo-soprano. Rebekah Smeltzer Staley, soprano, and Julie Silva, mezzo-soprano perform the work on November 3, 2017.
