Do You Dream in Color?: Insights From a Girl Without Sight

March 19, 2013 7:30 PM

Blind since birth, mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin has been praised for her “compelling artistry” and “communicative power” (The New York Times), and her “especially acute intuition about the power and subtleties of sound” (Los Angeles Times). In her memoir Do You Dream in Color?, Rubin shows how her resolve to continually redefine expectations has enabled her to achieve international success, live independently, ski, design jewelry, and fulfill her ambition to sing on stages around the world.

Laurie is co-founder and co-artistic director of Musique a la Mode Chamber Music Ensemble, which has a concert series in Manhattan’s East Village, and Ohana Arts, a performing arts festival and school in Honolulu, Hawaii.
