South Shore Opera Company of Chicago Opera and Soiree 4 PM Oct. 28

Gary Ossewaarde writes:

Our October 28 will be a spectacular program featuring four African American operatic singers in classical works and both rare and new works by Black composers from Coleridge-Taylor and Florence Price to George T. Walker and Shawn Okpebholo. There will also be instrumental works by our chamber orchestra under the baton of Leslie B. Dunner and Rachel Barton Pine (who has been a leading researcher of works of Black composers) performing Saint-Georges' Concerto for Violin in A Major.

Note- there was a change to the program (as in my introductory paragraph) after I sent the post. The song suite by Florence Price will not be performed in this very full program.
