Soprano Candice Hoyes, baritone Markel Reed, and pianist Kyle Walker perform excerpts from the score of Shirley Graham Du Bois’ opera, Tom-Tom, the first opera written and staged by an African American woman.
Following the performance, Caroline Jackson Smith, Professor of Theater and Africana Studies at Oberlin College, will moderate a panel discussion considering the opera’s complex representations of race, gender and history. Harvard lecturer Lucy Caplan, originally produced this event at Harvard in 2018, will join the panel alongside the three performers.
Tickets are $10 (free for members) and available on the Caramoor website.
