featuring Joelle Lamarre, soprano
with Daniel Schlosberg, piano

Composers to include E.E. Boykin, Anthony Davis, Adolphus Hailstork, Richard Thompson, Florence Price, Nkeiru Okoye, and many others

Joelle Lamarre is a pathbreaking soprano. She portrayed a lead role in George Lewis’s opera “Afterword” at the Ojai Festival, as well as in Ostrava and Hudderfield, to wide acclaim. She appeared in Chicago Opera Theater’s “emotionally riveting” world premiere of Dan Shore’s Freedom Ride, directed by Tazewell Thompson, and the Long Beach Oper’s world premiere of Anthony Davis’ Pulitzer Prize-winning opera, Central Park Five.

Joelle’s “must-see” performance of the powerful aria “I am Moses” from Nkeiru Okoye’s Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed That Line to Freedom, was a highlight of South Shore Opera Company of Chicago's 10th Anniversary Concert, recreating the role of Harriet Tubman, which she performed in the company’s 2016 production, directed by the legendary Chuck Smith. She serves as Artistic Advisor for the company.

In addition to performing across genres in theatre and opera, Joelle is a multi-faceted artist who pushes boundaries as a writer, music director and artistic advisor. Joelle is especially focused on The Violet Hour, which explores the career of acclaimed soprano Leontyne Price.
