Other credits include Olympia/Blue Lady in Pinocchio as a Young Artist with Cedar Rapids Opera (IA). In concert, Laura performed an NYC recital at the American Irish Historical Society, singing selections from Never Give All the Heart, a new collection of songs set to the poetry of W.B. Yeats. She recently finished recording a sequel to that album. A winner of the Montpelier Arts Center recital competition, she will be performing a series of French melodie recitals through 2018 with harpist Jacqueline Pollauf.
