March 13, 2019 Colburn Celebrity Series presented bass baritone Eric Owens, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, and Myra Huang piano at Disney Concert Hall. The solo and duo performances were a first for a Los Angeles audience at Disney Concert Hall. The program approached perfection with opera arias during the opening half with spirituals and art songs after the intermission. I sat next to a couple of professional singers who shouted BRAVO after nearly every song and volunteered "It doesn't get any better than this". Please see selfie with Eric Owens outside Disney Concert Hall before the concert and pic after concert in Disney Concert Hall book store with Tasha Hunter-President of Long Beach Arts Council Board of Directors. Tasha moderated a panel discussion, Equity and Diversity in the Arts, convened by Long Beach Opera on March 10, 2019 at Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach that included Lawrence Brownlee and opera composer Anthony Davis
