Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey
Joel A. Martin, Piano
The prima donna made a triumphant return to the Metropolitan Opera last year, capped by five encores. Kathleen Battle’s Underground Railroad: A Spiritual Journey chronicles the courageous quest for freedom by America’s slaves. Battle draws from her own musical roots with this collection of spirituals, performed with a gospel choir. Following her sold out appearance at the Met, Battle reprises the program in Los Angeles, choosing VPAC for its renowned acoustics.
