Congrats to Twin Cities composer Abbie Betinis! Yesterday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune named her one of their "Young Artists on the Verge."
Why? The paper says: "Composers' careers don't cleave to Hollywood's "breakthrough" narrative. The only thing Betinis is poised for is hard work -- lots of it. But her talent and tenacity, along with a self-critical bent, should take her far."
We agree! Abbie has been a regular guest in the Minnesota Public Radio studios, especially around Christmas, when she comes every year to premiere her annual Christmas carol. Click here for last year's session. And here's a video of the performance.
