Opera Philadelphia

Year: 2023

World Cafe Live is excited to partner with the renowned Opera Philadelphia as part of their Sounds of America initiative. In late May & early June, we will present two Bridge Sessions highlighting the friendship shared between Margaret Bonds and Langston Hughes. Philly school students will be invited to experience a short musical performance followed by a writing workshop.

Also in early June, we will host Resonant Philly, A Relaxed Performance in The Lounge at World Cafe Live. Join Philadelphia-based artist Cookie Diorio for a cabaret performance that takes audiences on a musical journey celebrating creatives from the Harlem Renaissance and their impact on the cultural landscape today. Audience members are invited to experience the performance with Vibrotextile™ wearable technology and the art of haptics from Music: Not Impossible.

Stay tuned for more information on these programs!
