Metropolitan Opera competition. In addition to her upcoming Nashville-recorded debut CD, Time-Keeper: Songs of 1800s America, Laura’s performance projects include vocal settings of poetry by Will Alexander and George Quasha, soundscapes for experimental films, and programs of works by Hungarian composers and
