A Tempo: Tracking Efforts to Make the Opera World More Diverse

There has been a lot of attention paid recently to calls for the classical music world to become more diverse, but how do you track the progress? A Tempo this Saturday (2/27 at 7 pm) looks at a partnership designed to monitor and evaluate some of these efforts in the opera world based on a pledge put out by Black Opera Alliance last Fall asking opera companies to commit to hiring more Black artists and administrators, perform more works by Black artists on main stages, and other steps to foster greater diversity. Host Rachel Katz will speak with Bass-Baritone Derrell Acon, project director and a member of BOA's Leadership Council, and Eric Nelson, Client Engagement Officer at TRG Arts.
