Clyne recently received a grant from Opera America to compose an opera, As Sudden Shut, to be premiered in a future season.

"[Anna Clyne is] an artist who writes from the heart, who defies categorization, and who reaches across all barriers and boundaries. Her compositions are meant to be played by skilled musicians and can reach different audiences, no matter what their background."
—Riccardo Muti
