Soprano and scholar Elise Christina Jenkins presents a program that probes thoughtfully into the past in order to move fearlessly toward the future. Elise pays tribute to the Black Women who have paved the way for today’s musical artists with genre-defying compositions and role-defining performances.
This program is presented in collaboration with IN Series, where Elise is a member of the inaugural Cardwell Dawson Artist Fellow cohort. The Artist Fellowship, designed by and for the participants, cedes place, power, and opportunity to Black singing artist-activist-leaders so that a dynamic ecosystem of operatic leadership emerges and proliferates.
