American Opera Project: Music as the Message
Event by American Opera Project.
The American Opera Project invites you to the third episode of Music as the Message, entitled OUR STORIES ~ OUR VOICES, an afternoon of inspirational songs and poems that encourage everyone to breathe life into our entire creative selves. Host Adrienne Danrich and a cast of guest artists whose talents defy convention, Dr. Tiffany Jackson, Joelle Lamarre, and James Harkness, will have the crowd thinking beyond the titles and labels that have been placed upon us and those that we have placed on ourselves. The Zoom-based live concert will also feature the world premiere of a newly-commissioned song by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec, with poetry by Adrienne Danrich.
For this Music as the Message episode, AOP is giving 50% of all donations raised on April 25th to Gift-Passion-Purpose Project, Inc, a liaison and resource providing music scholarships, grants, and mentorships to aspiring musicians from underrepresented communities.
