John H. Williams Theatre
PRESENTED BY: Choregus Productions
Known for her passion and flair, mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran has been heralded for both her beautiful voice and her bold programmatic choices, combining an intellectual inquisitiveness with her exquisite music-making. "Black Wall Street" premiered in New York City’s historic Federal Hall, after development at the cutting-edge arts center National Sawdust, and in concert at the Schomburg Center for Research In Black Culture/New York Public Library. With her collaborator and husband, iconic pianist Jason Moran (Artistic Director of Jazz for the John F. Kennedy Center), and historian and collector Gene Alexander Peters (Co-Director, Slave Relic Museum, Waterboro, SC), Moran’s chamber work reconsiders the tragedy of the Tulsa Race
Riot with in-depth history, a new gaze and a new soundtrack.
