“Adrienne Danrich takes us “to church” in her programs–in the best possible way.
It is a much needed voice-lifting and spirit-lifting in these challenging times now and to come.”
– Jennifer Davison, soprano
Created, hosted, and executive produced by Adrienne Danrich
Produced by Opera on Tap, in association with Broadway Presbyterian Church
MUSIC AS THE MESSAGE
Created and hosted by Emmy Award-winning soprano Adrienne Danrich, Music as the Message (MaM) is an interactive, hybrid performance series held live at the beautiful Broadway Presbyterian Church in NYC and simultaneously streamed on Zoom. MaM celebrates the power of music to unify and to inspire healing, joy, laughter, love and most importantly, community. As Adrienne, guest artists, and commissioned composers lead a program of uplifting songs and spoken word, attendees are encouraged to join in and lift their voices, whether they are attending in person or on Zoom (on mute!). Following this musical catharsis, the audience is welcome to speak with the artists, and reflect or listen in support of their fellow participants.
The Music as the Message series is produced by Adrienne Danrich and Opera on Tap, in association with Broadway Presbyterian Church. Free to the public, goodwill offerings accepted.
