Recitals & Lectures

Davóne Tines Lecture Presentation/Q&A

Thursday, March 30, 2023 at 7:30pm CDT

Galvin Recital Hall

Davóne Tines’s Recital No. 1: Mass melds opera, art song, contemporary classical music, spirituals, gospel, and protest songs to tell a deeply personal story of perseverance that connects all of humanity. Tines describes how he conceived of this project and the four years of intellectual and musical exploration that led to its creation. Tines will also speak about his other creative enterprises, including the creation of his VIGIL video dedicated to the memory of Breonna Taylor, and The Black Clown, a music theater production that premiered in 2018 at the American Repertory Theater that fuses vaudeville, gospel, opera, jazz, and spirituals to bring Langston Hughes’s verse to life.
