HBS Alumni Night at Hartford Stage - "Breath & Imagination"
V.I.P. Package - Drinks, Dinner, World Premier and Networking too! January 26th in Hartford, CT
Please join distinguished alumni from the Greater Hartford area on January 26th at the Hartford Stage for a special evening of networking and culture featuring the world premier of a new play by Daniel Beaty: Breath & Imagination: The Story of Roland Hayes
- From 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM schmooze with fellow alumni in a private lounge with an open bar and buffet dinner.
- At 8:00 PM sit down for a world premiere play about a fascinating figure almost lost to the history books, Roland Hayes. The play features an all-star cast and original music including spirituals, operatic arias, and classical vocals.
About the play:
Before Marian Anderson and Paul Robeson, there was Roland Hayes—the first world-renowned African-American classical vocalist. Born the son of a slave, Roland discovered his voice as a young boy singing spirituals in church. This play chronicles his amazing journey from a plantation in Georgia, to singing before kings and queens in Europe. Breath & Imagination explores the life of an American pioneer through words, movement, spirituals and classical music
This event is a collaboration among several alumni groups in the Greater Hartford Area, so this networking opportunity is not to be missed. Significant others are welcome too, so make this a date night as well!
