Join Us! For a special re-broadcast of Music as the Message, Episode 2
Created and hosted by Emmy Award-winning soprano Adrienne Danrich, Music as the Message (MaM)celebrates the power of music to unify.

“The group of voices assembled were absolutely top notch …

I could feel each heart and soul pouring out–unlike any other livestream or digital music I have experienced yet.

It is amazing the things that can be achieved with sensitivity, forethought, attention to detail, and artistry.”

– Jennifer Davison, soprano

Created and hosted by Emmy Award-winning soprano Adrienne Danrich, Music as the Message (MaM) is an interactive, virtual series. Streamed live, MaM celebrates the power of music to unify and to inspire healing, joy, laughter, love and most importantly, community. Adrienne, along with guest artists, the MaM choir and commissioned composers, leads a program of uplifting songs and spoken word. The MaM artists sing live from their own homes and encourage attendees to join in and lift their voices, as well —on mute, of course. Following this musical catharsis, the audience is welcome to speak with the artists, and reflect or listen in support of their fellow participants. The Music as the Message series is presented by The American Opera Project in association with Opera On Tap.

Adrienne invites us into her home for this second episode entitled SING ME TO THE END OF LOVE, an afternoon of poetry, dance, and songs that blend music from Classical, Jazz, R&B, Pop, and EDM. The program will conclude with a virtual BYOB reception where attendees can mingle with artists, share a toast, and sing a final simple, uplifting song with EVERYONE as they exit in a hopeful and joyous heart-space. For this special February 14th episode, AOP is giving 50% of all donations raised from the event to UnLocal, a non-profit that provides legal support and community education to New York’s immigrant communities.
