In a busy opera season - roles in Rossini's Otello and Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Mozart's Die Zauberflöte and more - Lawrence Brownlee finds time for an important cultural initiative. In his song " Rising, " he sings a series of newly commissioned works based on texts by great black writers and poets from the Harlem Renaissance, the heyday of African-American cultural expressions between 1920 and the Second World War. With this program, Brownlee and his pianist, Kevin J. Miller, spotlight a time characterized by increasing black self-awareness.
