Now in its third season, join Opera Theatre for a musical celebration of Black artistry across the decades, featuring local artists and members of Opera Theatre’s 2023 Festival Season. In recent years, this concert has featured collaborations with Washington University’s WU-SLam team, UrbArts, the Missouri Historical Society, and Jazz St. Louis. Each year’s concert forms new partnerships with Black artists and Black-led organizations from across the region, curated by an artist from the current festival season. The 2023 Black Music Month concert will be curated by musician, singer, producer, and Treemonisha composer Damien Sneed. Sneed has worked with artists as varied as Jessye Norman, Aretha Franklin, Wynton Marsalis, and Stevie Wonder, and embraces musical styles spanning classical, jazz, gospel, and pop.
