Arts Scene: The Future of the Arts with Opera In The Rock

Opera In The Rock

As arts organizations grapple with how best to serve their audiences during the pandemic, they’re also taking a closer look at exactly who is their audience; how to reflect, through their work, the faces and the voices of those who don’t typically see themselves represented on the stage or on the canvas.

This week, we hear a conversation focused on just that. We listen in on a panel discussion hosted by Opera In The Rock, called Let’s Talk Opera: A Conversation on the Future of the Arts in America.

Recorded on Dec. 7, 2021, the panel features opera singers Shannon Rookey, Matthew Tatus, and Jaimee Jensen-McDaniel, as well as Arkansas Symphony Orchestra interim artistic director Geoffrey Robson. Opera In The Rock’s new president and CEO Fred Owens moderates the discussion.
