Music as the Message: Sing On, Sing On!

Tuesday Jun 7, 2022

A concert celebrating Black Music Month

“Part of the magic of sung stories is that they can make an experience unique without being exclusive. This concert was an example of that. If the goal was to make opera something for everyone of any color, call it mission accomplished.”
St. Louis Post-Dispatch (June 2021)

Join soprano, author, educator, and St. Louis native Adrienne Danrich for a musical celebration of Black artistry across the decades! This one-night-only concert embraces gospel, jazz, classical music, poetry, and more for a multi-genre, multi-generational outpouring of joy that will leave you uplifted and inspired.

Featuring local musicians, spoken word artists, and members of OTSL’s 2022 Festival Season company.

Please note: this event does not take place at OTSL’s usual venue at the Loretto-Hilton Center, but will instead be presented at The Grandel in the Grand Center Arts District.
