(Free) Planetarymuse Forum: Rebecca Hargrove + Kyle Walker Join the Movement!

Mon, December 7, 2020 8:30 PM, EST

Let’s celebrate! Join us online for a stirring discussion where we will hear the voice and story of two renaissance extraordinaires -- Rebecca L. Hargrove and pianist Kyle Walker.

Rebecca L. Hargrove is an actress and soprano. Throughout the COVID-19 quarantine she has found joy in creating and participating in socially distanced concerts and plays. Last season she made her Met Opera debut in Porgy and Bess, starred in the NYT Critic's Pick opera Acquanetta, and was featured in New York City Center's Gala production of Evita.

Critically-acclaimed pianist, Kyle Walker, is a strong advocate for social justice and equality who "believes music can speak to social issues better than verbal language can." Additionally, he is a founding member and chamber music producer of The Dream Unfinished, which is an activist orchestra with a mission "to use classical music as a platform to engage audiences in dialogues surrounding social and racial justice."

The Planetarymuse Forum is free. However, donations to support the artist are welcome. Rebecca and Kyle will receive 100% of the proceeds from the event!

{The Planetarymuse Forum is presented by the Groupmuse Foundation’s Planetary Music Movement. This bridge-building endeavor guides Groupmuse to overcome the historical dominance of European ethnocentrism within the classical music tradition, by celebrating historical and contemporary musical traditions of the planet, particularly and imminently through the inclusion and celebration of works by artists of African descent.
