Discussion with Jason Moran and Alicia Hall Moran: Two Wings: The Music of Black America in Migration
GU Distinguished Artist in Residence Pianist Jason Moran and his wife mezzo-soprano Alicia Hall Moran will discuss the process of creating their concert Two Wings: The Music of Black America in Migration, in preparation for their premiere at Carnegie Hall followed up by their performance at The Kennedy Center April 14. Examining the Great Migration—the major demographic shift following emancipation in which millions of African Americans left their homes in the South for the North, West, and beyond—the work explores personal family lore as well as the stories of the historical movement, with music spanning classical to Broadway, rhythm and blues to gospel, work songs to rock ‘n’ roll.
