Choral conducting faculty member and composer Dominick DiOrio has been awarded the 2013 Advocacy Award by Boston Metro Opera for his work “And the barriers had vanished”.
Written in December 2011, “And the barriers had vanished” is a 25-minute song cycle for soprano and cello. The work explores the many facets of love in hiding. The texts are diverse, drawn from a selection of poets whose words touch on themes of passion, coming-of-age, secrecy, forbidden desire, and exultation.
The work will receive a featured performance as part of Boston Metro Opera’s regular season. It will also become standard repertoire with Boston Metro’s Educational Programming and Community Outreach divisions.
