Welcome Hudson Valley to this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations.

This week’s guest is Evan Mack, Sullivan County native and Founder of We Are Instrumental. Founded in 2020, We Are Instrumental is dedicated to providing well-working musical instruments to students throughout Northern New York. Evan and I also talk about his background as a pianist and opera composer. He has been considered one of the most gifted composers of his generation by industry insiders and has published several successful operas. We go into how that all ties into his goal of building this strong music community.

The Operas of Evan Mac

Musical America says Evan Mack is "considered one of the most gifted composers of his generation by industry insiders." Believing that opera should be theater grounded in climatic expression that delivers larger-than-life stories and music that harnesses the full athletic thrill of singing, Evan Mack has devoted much of his compositional life to opera and song. Here is a gallery of a few of his published operas.
