Berkshire Opera Festival presents an evening of arias and art songs by Black composers sung by renowned soprano Kearstin Piper Brown and acclaimed tenor Joshua Blue. Neglected for far too long, these trailblazing women and men wrote outstanding, powerful works that influenced generations of composers to come. BOF is proud to celebrate this rich history of music from two centuries ago to the present day.
