Givonna Joseph, Founder of OperaCréole, tells AfriClassical of an Aug. 16 article by Chris Waddington in The New Orleans Times-Picayune on the group: “Creole composers celebrated by New Orleans vocal group.”

Givonna Joseph writes:
I am sending this just to share, thought you might like that our local newspaper gave us/me such attention. So many people have stopped on the streets who read the article, to tell me that they did not know any of our historical information.

I am attaching the page from the printed paper, so you can see the interesting title they gave it. "Could Satchmo Have Sung Opera?"
