Opera Grand Rapids still belts it out while everyone’s sheltered in place, and fans can enjoy it from the best seat in their house.
Singing in Place is a four-part web series that features emerging artists streaming short recitals from their homes.
This week, Singing in Place will feature GVSU student, mother and OGR chorus member Avalon Cutts-Jones.
Cutts-Jones became involved with OGR in 2017 when a professor told her the group was performing “Dream,” a performance telling the story of Martin Luther King Jr. and encouraged her to sign up.
“I’m glad I took his advice because not only is this how I first met Maestro James Meena and the Opera GR community, but from my work in the chorus for the GR show, Douglass Tappin, the composer, offered me a role in the full production with the Toledo Opera and Opera Carolina playing Rosa Parks,” Cutts-Jones said.
