Shout for joy, Cincinnati! JMR and the CSO celebrate 20+ years of Classical Roots, one of The Queen City’s most inspiring musical traditions. Join us for a program that celebrates Black voices and stories from American music and theater with selections from Ragtime and The Wiz and arias from Terence Blanchard’s highly-acclaimed opera Fire Shut Up in My Bones and Castor and Patience with libretto by former U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith, which premieres with Cincinnati Opera this July. Experience the voices of the Classical Roots Community Choir as they are joined by renowned guest artists, Talise Trevigne and Norm Lewis, and let the powerful presence of song and spirit in beautiful Music Hall lift up your heart.
