Experience the Magic of Performance and Conversation

Each season, Knoxville Opera’s African-American guest artists present in our African-American Voices Series. Some presentations occur in public schools while others are open to the general public or civic organizations in various venues throughout Knoxville. Each presentation includes a performance by the artist(s) and an interview segment during which the artist shares about his/her personal education, the challenges and advantages to doing well in school, and the personal investment of time, sacrifice, and commitment required to excel in a given endeavor (e.g. a career as an opera singer). This interview is followed by an open conversation between the artist and audience members. If you would like to host a presentation for your group or in your venue, please email hello@knoxvilleopera.com or call 865-524-0795 x251.
