March 6, 2020
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Lenfest Center for the Arts, 615 W. 129 St., New York, NY 10027 The Lantern (Eighth Floor)
A talk by Robert G. O’Meally with music organized by Christine Correa featuring Christine Correa (vocals), Olivia Harris (voice), Kanoa Mendenhall (bass), Dayeon Seok (drums) and Andrew Boudreau (keyboard) This evening’s multiform presentations reflect on Homer’s fatally alluring Sirens as refigured by the African American painter Romare Bearden, whose Odysseus and musicians are people of color. Collaborating on Robert G. O’Meally’s talk on this subject will be the singer Christine Correa and her gathering of jazz voices and instrumentalists, performing songs of political intervention and deep love—songs to die for. Friday, March 6, 2020, 6:30pm The Lantern Lenfest Center for the Arts 615 West 129th Street New York, NY 10027 This event is free and open to the public but registration is required.
