Fahad Siadat ’18

Fahad Siadat ’18 writes to tell us: “I recently composed music for and performed in Theatre Dybbuk’s newest theatrical piece Hell Prepared, a nearly two-hour interdisciplinary work with a soundtrack of entirely a cappella voices. I was also the composition director for the NEO Voice Festival, a new festival in Los Angeles celebrating new and innovative music for the voice. This fall I’ll begin work on an evening-length work: a musical setting of “The Conference of the Birds” commissioned by The Esoterics in Seattle, with a premiere performance scheduled in the spring of 2020. I’ll also appear in The Industry’s newest main-stage opera production Sweetland, directed by Yuval Sharon.”
