Kathleen Battle: Surrenders To Spirituals From The Underground Railroad At The Schomburg

kathleen-battle1Kathleen Battle is world renowned for her pristine operatic soprano, and has performed Baroque-era compositions to contemporary works. In November, Battle will return to The Metropolitan Opera after 20 years to perform “Kathleen Battle: Spirituals From The Underground Railroad.” Join us for an evening exploring of the Underground Railroad and the language conveyed in spirituals of a people determined to get and remain free. Battle will be in conversation with host Terrance McKnight (WQXR),  Peter Gelb (General Manager of The Metropolitan Opera), and ethnomusicologist Aja Burrell Woods.

Watch on livestream.
