Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price and composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray turned their shared love for the jazz music of the 1930s and ’40s into a heart-warming collaboration between friends.

“It’s a special kind of magic when two voices meet and immediately sound like they’ve never been apart. The voices of acoustic duo Rachael & Vilray are magical enough on their own, but when they blend in song the results are utterly sublime.” — Chronogram

Join us for an in-depth exploration of Shirley Graham Du Bois’ opera, Tom-Tom written while the composer, playwright, and activist was a student at Oberlin in 1932. Tom-Tom was the first opera written and staged by an African American woman and the work has not been produced since its initial run. All that survives of the score is an incomplete piano-vocal reduction. In this livestream, soprano Candice Hoyes, baritone Markel Reed, and pianist Kyle Walker perform excerpts from the score. Following the performance, Caroline Jackson Smith, Professor of Theater and Africana Studies at Oberlin College, moderates a panel discussion considering the opera’s complex representations of race, gender and history. Harvard lecturer Lucy Caplan, originally produced this event at Harvard in 2018, will join the panel alongside the three performers.
