OUR SONG, OUR STORY: THE NEW GENERATION OF BLACK VOICES, MUSICAL DIRECTION BY DAMIEN SNEED WITH RAEHANN BRYCE-DAVIS, MEZZO SOPRANO, BRANDIE INEZ SUTTON, SOPRANO, AND STRING QUARTET

Damien Sneed is a pianist, organist, conductor, composer, producer, arranger, and arts educator whose work spans multiple genres. Sneed has worked with jazz, classical, pop, and R&B legends including the late Aretha Franklin, Wynton Marsalis, Jessye Norman, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Ashford & Simpson, Lawrence Brownlee, and many others. Our Song, Our Story is an evening of music highlighting some of the world’s most well-known operatic arias, art songs, and spirituals – paying homage to musical greats like Marian Anderson and Jessye Norman, who paved the way for other African American opera singers. Under the musical direction of polymath Damien Sneed at the piano, the concert will bring together the powerful voices of mezzo-soprano Raehann Bryce-Davis and soprano Brandie Inez Sutton accompanied by string quartet.

“Damien Sneed is an ambassador for classical and gospel music who brings positivity, optimism and thoroughness to every occasion. . . . In the realest sense, he uses his artistry to make our world a better place.”
