JORGE SOSA is a Mexican born composer who lives in New York City. He joined the Composer Librettist Development Program as a Resident Artist in 2008 and is currently at work on La Reina with librettist Laura Sosa Pedroza. An electro-acoustic opera with text in Spanish and English, La Reina draws its narrative from the drug trade in Mexico and the United States and is inspired by some of the most vivid real life players in this increasingly violent war from the past and present. In 2014 Jorge’s works Enchantment and Stray Birds for chamber ensemble and live electronics were premiered at the Difrazzione Festival in Florence; and his operatic setting of Man Ray’s film “L’Etoile de Mer” was premiered in Kansas City by the Black House Collective, receiving critical acclaim. In 2012, Jorge was commissioned to write “Song of the Last Crossing” for the OPERA America Songbook. His “Trés Sonetos de Quevedo” for soprano and guitar quartet were recently released by the Cuarteto de Guitarras de la Ciudad de México on their CD “A Cinco” and were selected to be performed at the “Foro de Música Nueva Manuel Enriquez” in Mexico City, 2015. Jorge’s Refraction I was included in the CD “Quirk” by clarinetist Mauricio Salguero. His albums “Plastic Time” and “Enceladus” are available on all the major music download sites and through the website www.jorgesosa.com. He is currently Assistant Professor of music at Molloy College in Long Island.
