A Night of Black Excellence: Past, Present, and Future

Online Event
Fort Worth, TX

This inspiring event sponsored by Tarrant County Pearls Chapter, The Society, Incorporated and hosted by WFAA's Tashara Parker, includes internationally renowned opera singers Nicole Heaston, Latonia Moore, Kenneth Overton, Karen Slack, Kevin Thompson, and many more phenomenal Black artists within and beyond the world of classical music. Produced by Charles W. Bush (Founder of Appointed Productions) and directed by Sheran Goodspeed Keyton (FWO Manager of Education & Community Engagement) this virtual benefit concert will be one of the highlights of the 2021 season.

Fort Worth Opera’s celebration of Black History Month is long overdue and appropriate in this time. We are overjoyed to have a line-up of A+, international Black classical and non-classical artists, living both locally in the DFW metroplex and throughout the county. It is my distinct joy and pleasure to introduce, many for the first time, this roster of Black Excellence.
