Dear Judge Zick
I will be performing Justin Holland's  Scraps From The Operas: Rigoletto in an all American program with Candace Keach this June.  The concerts are being held in conjunction with Childbloom of Northeast Georgia, an African American owned business.

One feature of the concert is to compare the life trajectories of Holland and Sidney Lanier, another Iconoclastic son of the American South who fought for the Confederacy and went on to forge a life in music and the arts.
