Listen to Dr. Tammy L. Kernodle, musician and scholar, discuss the storytelling power of jazz, soul, R&B and it’s legacy and fusing with opera to communicate powerful narratives through music—particularly as they are rooted in Black American experience, excellence, and expertise. From a deep history, Dr. Kernodle focuses on contemporary opera in the late 20th century and the intersectional identities in these operas that reveal the complex stories of our time. BLO Artists perform excerpts in this one-hour lecture performance presented by Boston Lyric Opera in support of the Boston Public Library’s Repairing America: Racial Equity and Recovery initiative.
