PAST CONCERTS THIS SEASON

Thank you, Marian, Thank you, Paul: A Tribute to Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson • Monday, Nov. 1

  • Duo Alexis Davis-Hazell and Earl Hazell present a performance honoring contralto Marian Anderson (1897-1993) and bass-baritone/actor/activist Paul Robeson (1898-1976) — two key African American trailblazers in opera and other musical art forms. Having overcome countless barriers in the face of adversity, their talents, tenacity, and powerful voices on and off the stage paved the way for generations of great artists. The College’s performance features two of those great artists mezzo-soprano Alexis Davis-Hazell and basso contante Earl Hazell, who will bring history alive through African American Spirituals, American art songs and arias as shared by Anderson and Robeson during their careers. Attendees may recognize music by Copland, Verdi, Kern & Hammerstein, and Flaherty & Ahrens. The Hazell duo’s concerts carry educational components, such as the contributions of African Americans in jazz, opera, poetry, American art songs, Spirituals and other art forms that are part of the cultural make-up of modern American society. Tickets are $25 for adults; $10 for CofC students and youth (18 and under); and $15 for CofC faculty/staff. • Buy tickets.
