Champion: An Opera in Jazz Ringside Chat

Opera Parallèle and SFJAZZ present Ringside, a Zoom roundtable featuring artists from Terence Blanchard’s Champion: An Opera in Jazz. The hour-long conversation will be hosted by Opera Parallèle Founder & Artistic Director Nicole Paiement, the discussion will include SFJAZZ Founder & Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline, SF Conservatory of Music faculty member Michael Mohammed, cast members Kenneth Kellogg, Karen Slack, and Arthur Woodley as well as bassist Marcus Shelby. They will explore opera as a medium for raising societal consciousness and enlivening contemporary issues, and discuss how Terence Blanchard’s blending of jazz and European concert music conveys stories of the Black and African American experience and the human condition.
