Scholar Lucy Caplan, in partnership with the AMOC, leads LISTENING TO TOM-TOM, a discussion of the 1932 opera by author, musicologist and composer Shirley Graham Du Bois. Following an introduction of excerpts from the work, Caplan and fellow panelists, including AMOC bass-baritone Davóne Tines, will discuss the opera's complex representations of race, gender, and history, as well as the opportunities and challenges of presenting Tom-Tom today.
