EPISODE 4: SING TOGETHER, CHILDREN!
Sunday, June 13th, 4pm EDT
THIS EVENT IS HELD ON ZOOM
Adrienne invites us into her home for the fourth, and final, episode of Music as the Message, entitled SING TOGETHER, CHILDREN!
Through an array of multi-genre songs, poems, and hymns, as well as personal remembrances from special guest, Rose-Marie Bell (89yo), we will celebrate the sorrow, the joy, and the accomplishments of African Americans. Held in honor of Juneteenth, we will learn about the history of the holiday from creator and host Adrienne Danrich, her Music as the Message choir, and a cast of talented guest artists. The Zoom-based live and interactive concert will also feature a newly-commissioned arrangement by Nkeiru Okoye, focusing on the healing power of kindness.
For this Music as the Message episode, AOP is giving 50% of all donations raised on June 13th to Friends of the Children New York and Music Kitchen, two nonprofits empowering and uplifting youth and those in homeless shelters, through mentorship relationships and music therapy.
Adrienne Danrich, Soprano
returns for Al Fresco Arias | June 17 & 18
! An OLD fan favorite, Adrienne first thrilled Delaware audiences in 2015 with THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, her Emmy Award–winning program chronicling the ground-breaking careers of opera icons Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price. In 2019, she wowed Wilmington audiences again in DEAD MAN WALKING—the Broad Street Review
raved: “OperaDelaware packs its production with riveting performances… Singing [Sister] Helen’s counselor and friend Sister Rose, Danrich is striking vocally and dramatically polished.”
For AL FRESCO ARIAS, expect to hear Adrienne perform powerhouse favorites from TURANDOT, TANNHÄUSER, and more including “Breathe”, a powerful original song she co-wrote with composer Drew Hemenger “dedicated to All Black Lives, LGBTQ and People of Color who we have lost due to systemic racism, hatred and fear.”
Only a few open pods remain for both June performances—secure your tickets today: operade.org/tickets
