Soprano and scholar Elise Christina Jenkins presents a program that┬áprobes thoughtfully into the past in order to move fearlessly toward the future. Elise┬ápays 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.
