On Friday morning it was announced by National
Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Rocco Landesman that our very own John Conklin,
BLO’s Artistic Advisor since 2008, is among the four recipients of the 2011 NEA Opera Honors—the highest award our nation bestows in opera! The other three
award recipients include mezzo soprano Risë Stevens, composer Robert Ward, and
Seattle Opera General Director Speight Jenkins. Past NEA Opera Honorees include
John Adams, Philip Glass, Marilyn Horne, James Levine, and many more acclaimed
artists. Congratulations, John! Read the full press release here.
