Rising, Together: J’Nai Bridges, mezzo-soprano, with Lester Green, piano
March 26th, 2021 @ 8:00 PM - April 1st, 2021 @ 11:30 PM$20
J’Nai Bridges is among the most captivating singers of her generation—“a rich-toned mezzo-soprano with a calmly commanding stage presence” (The New Yorker). A star of the Metropolitan Opera and Washington National Opera, she also became an instant WPA favorite thanks to her headline appearance in our March 2020 Virtual Gala. For her Home Delivery Plus performance, to be recorded at Sixth & I, she has crafted a very special program on the themes of uplift and community, featuring luminary 20th- and 21st-century composers (some her close collaborators), including Richard Danielpour, Florence Price, Shawn Okpebholo, Carlos Simon, Margaret Bonds, and more. The program will also feature classic works from Brahms and Berg, as well as multidisciplinary collaborations and incisive conversations on the topic of “Rising, Together.”
Premieres March 26 at 8p.m. ET, streams to ticket buyers and subscribers through April 1.
