JUNETEENTH: Opera in the Key of Freedom

 


NEMPAC Opera Project is proud to celebrate its 10th Season with Juneteenth: Opera in the Key of Freedom on June 19, 2021.

Featuring the works of William Grant Still, Scott Joplin, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, and a World Premiere Commissioned Piece for North End Music & Performing Arts Center by Mason Bynes.

This virtual streaming presentation will celebrate the holiday of Juneteenth, when the Emancipation Proclamation was read in 1865 in Texas to the final groups of enslaved people marking the end to slavery in the United States. Through a variety of music from Black Composers across three centuries, we will celebrate Juneteenth with the themes of freedom, triumph, and joy. These works will be performed by leading Black Musicians of the Greater Boston Arts scene and filmed at the African Meeting House on Boston’s Black Heritage Trail.

Streaming Virtually on June 19th, 2021, 12:30 p.m. This program will be available online after its premiere for viewing in your own time. This event is FREE TO ALL.
