Premiere Performance of “THE WAY OF LIGHT” Spoken Word Operetta

May 24@6:30pm-9:30pm

You are invited to join artist vanessa german alongside an intergenerational community choir of Topekans as they undertake the premiere performance of the Sound of Courage Spoken Word Operetta, which delves fearlessly through the doorway of Brown v Board and into dimensions of human citizenship that are the truest heart of the phrase, “American Spirit.”

A reception will take place prior to the performance and will begin at 6:30p so that attendees may have a chance to view the exhibit of sculptural works that are part of the “Love & Justice: 70 Years & A Reckoning” project commissioned by ArtsConnect. The operetta performance will begin at 8p and will be followed by a “talk back” about the creation of these works of art.

This project is possible thanks to the generosity of spirit offered by so many in the Topeka community. It is also possible because of the financial support of the following businesses and individuals: National Endowment for the Arts, Visit Topeka, Inc., Washburn University, the Mulvane Art Museum, Security Benefit, FHLBank Topeka, Bartlett & West Engineers, the Brown v. Board National Historical Park, Don & Edie Snethen, KTWU Public Television, the Kansas Arts Commission, and the Mid-America Arts Alliance. Fundraising for the project is ongoing and sponsorship opportunities are still available.
