Carlisle Floyd: A New Voice for American Opera

South Caroliniana Library (Lumpkin Foyer)
Feb 6, 2013 - Apr 20, 2013

This new exhibit celebrates South Carolina-born and internationally-acclaimed opera composer and librettist Carlisle Floyd. A native of Latta, S.C., and longtime faculty member at Florida State University, Floyd has chosen the South Caroliniana Library as the official repository for his personal papers.

The exhibit is organized around the milestones of Floyd’s life and musical compositions, and is timed to coincide with the publication of Falling Up, the Days and Nights of Carlisle Floyd, the Authorized Biography (Syracuse University Press, 2013) by Thomas Holliday.
