"It is an honor to be a part of the important work that the University of Michigan SMTD is doing in giving voices to three black composers over the next 10 years. One of the works features the text from my poem Tethered Voices!
"Three compositions have been commissioned to date. The first commission, “Tethered Voices,” was initially recorded on video in September 2021 but will have its first live performance before an audience at U-M on April 6, 2022. Composed by SMTD alumnus James Lee III (BM ’99, MM ’01, DMA ’05), this eight-minute work for narrator and orchestra is a setting of a new poem of the same name by poet and conductor Kalena Bovell."

So proud to have you on our team, Laura!

After our dress rehearsal for , at The Metropolitan OperaI got to have dinner Cafe Fiorello with my voice teacher, Laura Brooks Rice. I began studying with Laura in 1998, after the death of the woman who taught both of us, . She has been my friend, my teacher, my most trusted ear, and her steady hand has helped guide me through all the changing and challenging repertory I have sung in my career. I'm so glad you could be here today, Laura! Thank you for being one of the greatest voice teachers in the world, and to all you young singers out there, I wish for you someone like Laura has been for me!
