Fashioning Disruption (w/TIM+THOM)

Happy Monday, dear Scorekeepers! We hope you are refreshed and rejuvenated after that hectic holiday week. As you know, Paige, Lee, and Rocky are beginning their Sagittarius Season Sabbatical, but we didn't want to leave you hanging! For your listening pleasure, we offer this dope conversation with Minnesota fashion designers and Project Runway alums, TIM+THOM! Through their incredible designs and their annual Black Hearts Ball, they are celebrating and inspiring diversity, inclusion, growth and representation in the fashion scene. Plus, they're opera lovers and incorporate it into their shows! Join us for a lively chat with the Brothers Navarro all about interdisciplinary inspiration, growing up fashionable in Rochester, and maybe a little Tim Gunn tea. Just a little... Oh, and shout out to Greg! Let's do it to it, y'all.

About the Podcast

The Score
News and commentary about opera and classical music seen through an anti-racist and anti-oppressive lens
It's time to put opera on game! Hosts Lee Bynum (VP, Impact), Paige Reynolds (Civic Engagement Manager), and Rocky Jones (EDI Director) are three Black and queer artists, pop culture aficionados, and arts administrators at Minnesota Opera, who are working every day to bring more diversity, equity, and inclusivity into opera and classical music. The Score is their provocative, thoughtful, and humorous commentary on opera's past, present, and future, as seen through an anti-racist and anti-oppressive lens. Each episode features a variety of stories from a variety of perspectives that bring Black, Indigenous, people of color, queer, trans and nonbinary folks, and everyone else into the discussion of ownership over and access to the art form. From the opera house to the statehouse to your house, each episode will amplify the voices of those in the field who are pushing the boundaries of what opera is, who it is for, and how it can transform us and our communities.
