“Very rarely do we get to so directly communicate our feelings about what’s going on in the world. It’s allowed us to kind of grieve and process a lot of trauma.”

Voice alumna Briana Elyse Hunter (MM ’12) talks about her role in “Blue”, a new opera currently running at The Glimmerglass Festival. The new opera by Tazewell Thompson and Jeanine Tesori tells the story of a couple in Harlem who are forced to confront their teenage son’s sudden death by police violence.
