Clare Shore, the second woman to earn the doctor of musical arts degree in composition
 from The Juilliard School, has received critical acclaim 
for her works, with reviewers from The New York Times to The Washington Post hailing her works as “provocative,” “immensely dramatic,” “ingenious and evocative,” and “romantic to the core.” Kim Sherman is a composer whose music covers the spectrum of musical genres from opera, chamber, and orchestral to musical theatre. An award-winning artist and recipient of an NEA Individual Artist Grant, Ms. Sherman creates music that has been called “powerfully lyrical and compelling.” Judith Sainte Croix is a prolific composer, whose works includes The White Birds of the Deep Night, Renewal, Vision V. and, most recently, the opera The Vine of the Soul, a drama set in the rainforest.
