About the Symposium

 

This year, 30 Days of Opera—an annual fall tradition—brings some extra special events to Memphis. In addition to daily free performances at places like Cooper-Young Fest, Germantown Festival, Memphis Pride, and the Levitt Shell, 30 Days will also include a special symposium in collaboration with Rhodes College featuring keynote speaker Naomi Andre. Dr. Andre is best known for her book Black Opera: History, Power, Engagement, and her CNN segment on how opera companies can learn from Beyoncé.
