The program is available on the Hop Art website.
"History only records certain people's stories" is a powerful message shared through the BSO OrchKids project "Queens Unseen: Royals Without Crowns," an original composition centered around the suffrage movement and the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. Forgotten Voices features students, artists, and scholars in the creative process of this project, and Black composers' voices are elevated with works from the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a contemporary of Mozart; Scott Joplin; Hannah Kendall; and other gifted living composers. This episode seeks to bridge the gap between untold histories and contemporary classical works. Following the watch party, participants may engage in conversation and Q&A with BSO Assistant Conductor Jonathan Rush and Baltimore-based composer James Lee III.
HopArt programs this semester include Baltimore's best artists and cultural institutions including Baltimore Center Stage, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Afro House, Baltimore Improv, and more. (and a few still TBA!). Virtual and free!
While typically for JHU undergrads only, many of these virtual programs are open to all JHU students and some faculty and staff, if slots are available.
