Thanks to our friends at the Hammer Museum, we are able to share this fun and freewheeling conversation between composer, conductor, pianist, and writer Matthew Aucoin and comedy writer and performer Megan Amram. Best known for his operas, Aucoin is LA Opera’s first artist-in-residence and has been commissioned by the Company as well as the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and NPR's This American Life. Amram currently works on “The Good Place” and has written for the series “Transparent”, “Silicon Valley”, “Parks and Recreation”, and “The Simpsons”, as well as for publications such as the New Yorker and McSweeney’s. This event on March 21, 2019 was a co-presentation between the Hammer and LA Opera.
