Guest Lecture Recital "Beyond Race: African American Art Songs & Spirituals"

-

Location: Snite Museum of Art, Annenberg Auditorium

Guest Lecture Recital "Beyond Race: African American Art Songs & Spirituals" will feature performances by guest artists Caroline Helton, soprano (University of Michigan) & Emery Stephens, baritone (Wayne State University), in collaboration with Notre Dame faculty Jessica McCormack, soprano, Stephen Lancaster, baritone, and Daniel Schlosberg, piano. 

This lecture recital is part of the guest residency, "Beyond Race," designed to empower and encourage students and teachers of all races to embrace the historically rich, serious vocal music of classically trained African­American composers. The recital will trace the development of African American Art Song and Spiritual through some of its greatest composers. 

The residency will also include a public masterclass and discussion (Wednesday, November 2, 10:45-12:45, Crowley 115), which will demonstrate ways in which singers can overcome barriers to integrating art songs and spirituals by African ­American composers into the canon of solo concert repertoire, as well as enable voice students from all racial backgrounds to forge a more visceral understanding of the range of African­ American experiences, both contemporary and historical.
