“I’ve travelled all around the world doing this (singing opera) and found out that most White people hate opera just as much as Black people do,” stated soprano Angela Brown, tongue-in-cheek.
Presenting “Opera… from a Sistah’s Point of View,” Brown’s mix of arias and conversation was ever so engaging and sometimes knee-slapping humorous when speaking to the large audience that Thursday night.
However, it was when Brown let loose with her powerfully crystal clear voice that there was no doubt that a great artist was performing in the house. Her dynamic vocal control effortlessly flew between quiet valleys and gargantuan mountains full of grace and beauty.
