Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Will Shutes, Director of Marketing and PR with Nashville Opera, who shares some of the history for the organization and then spotlights some of their upcoming productions, like FLORENCIA EN EL AMAZONAS, which is a work that Nashville Opera gave its New York premiere in 2016 and is bringing back to Middle Tennessee.
During the interview, Will talks about the artistry and importance of the Opera, how they collaborate and work with other Operas and nonprofit organizations, and how they are taking performances out in the community with Nashville Opera’s Opera on Wheels, a mobile stage where the organization can meet people where they live and share concerts of opera, Broadway, and the Great American Songbook for free. He also spotlights Nashville Opera’s Education Tour, which will reach over 25,000 Middle Tennessee children for free in their schools, and Nashville Opera’s HBCU Fellowship with Fisk and Tennessee State. He wraps up with ways the community can support the arts and their efforts, get involved, and enjoy their performances.
