Laurie Rubin, author of the memoir Do You Dream In Color?, has been everywhere this week, making appearances yesterday at the Free Library of Philadelphia and on WHYY’s Radio Times with Marty Moss-Coane. Mezzo-soprano Rubin talked with Coane about her experiences as a blind singer, revealing her experiences with music directors who refused to allow her to perform in operas due to concerns over her disability.
Don’t miss her charming performance at the Free Library of Philadelphia, where she delighted crowds singing with her partner, Jenny Taira accompanying her on piano, and read an excerpt from her memoir.
