A full scholarship student during his tenure at the Juilliard School, Wlad studied composition exclusively with Oscar and Pulitzer Prize winner John Corigliano (The Red Violin).

Wlad’s klezmer opera The Property has just premiered with Lyric Opera of Chicago to great success. It has received rave reviews, such as: “Marhulets miraculously combines the elements of klezmer, the secular side of Jewish music, with the underpinnings of contemporary opera.” His use of leitmotif is masterful, and his sense of vocal line, sublime. The reconciliation is in the music. – New City Stage.

At present, Wlad is working on a symphonic commission for the opening of the 25th edition of Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow.
