Victoria Bond



Victoria Bond is not the first composer to chip away at Joyce’s monumental novel. But her “Cyclops,” scored for speakers, choir, violin, clarinet and piano, can be counted as one of the more successful ones.

Victoria Bond has struck gold in the story of Victoria Woodhull.

Internationally acclaimed composer/conductor Victoria Bond’s compositions have been praised by The New York Times as "powerful, stylistically varied and technically demanding," and her conducting has been called “impassioned” by the Wall Street Journal and “full of energy and fervor” by The New York Times.

Bond’s opera, Clara, about the 19th century composer and pianist Clara Schumann will premiere in 2019 at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden Germany. Victoria Bond’s most recent CD, “Soul of a Nation: Portraits of Presidential Character”, features soloists from the Chicago and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestras. Released on Albany Records in 2018, each of the four works include narration taken from the president’s own words.
