IOB highlights Indigenous composers, artists with two-night event
Intermountain Opera Bozeman is set to present Circle of Resilience this month. Performances will take place Friday and Saturday, May 14th and 15th, at 7pm. Both will be held at the Rockin’ TJ Ranch.
Made possible by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, Circle of Resilience is a recital of vocal works written by Indigenous composers and performed by Indigenous artists. Traditional Native American songs will be performed alongside contemporary opera written by living Indigenous creators, including Emmy Award-winning composer Jerod Tate (Chickasaw) and Canadian playwright and librettist Marie Clements (Métis).
These performances are FREE of admission, but registration is required as seating is limited. Strict COVID safety precautions will be observed for the in-person audience. A video recording of the recital will be aired online in June for those who are unable to attend. To reserve tickers for Circle of Resilience, visit www.intermountainopera.org or call (406) 587-2889.
Established in 1979, Intermountain Opera promotes and shares the joy of opera in Montana and surrounding areas by providing affordable, high quality opera performances to audience members of all ages. IOB also provides educational outreach to area schools and communities. •
