Two more chances for OH FREEDOM!

I may be bias, but the OH FREEDOM! performance at the Frazier International History Museum was truly inspiring last week. Our artists, Courtney Cleveland and Eric McKeever have really brought themselves into the work and made it their own.

There are two more opportunities to see this beautiful tribute to African American history. The Fund for the Arts is sponsoring two more happy hours at the Frazier Thursday, February 3 & 10 from 5 - 7pm.

Here is a clip from last week to whet your appetite. Courtney and Eric perform pieces from Porgy & Bess. (Eric just finished a national tour as Jake in Porgy & Bess for the PAB Theater Inc. and has performed the role for Dayton Opera and covered it with Virginia Opera.)

The singers will continue to perform the entire OH FREEDOM! program for schools through the middle of February.

Fund for the Arts Happy Hours

In the arts, we love a party.  We think sharing some music with a glass of wine is one of the best things in life.  The Fund for the Arts will be hosting such events at the Frazier International History Museum every Thursday starting tomorrow through February 10.

This is the second year the Fund has sponsored these Happy Hours to honor Black History Month. 
Kentucky Opera Studio Artists will perform excerpts from the school tour, OH FREEDOM!
Here is a short video that the Frazier posted from last year's event featuring last year's artists, Phillip Morgan and Erica Cochran.

We hope you will make it to the Fraizer for one of these festive Thursday celebrations!
