ART CLASS: Come See Us Live Sunday, 10/29!

It's been way too long, Scorekeepers! Did you miss us? We missed you! How was your summer? How has your fall been? How's your mama and them? Well, we have been hard at work on our next endeavor since we last left you and we are so excited to FINALLY share the details of our new adventure! So... if we may, we'd like to proudly introduce you to... ART CLASS, a brand new podcast from the one and only Lincoln Center Education. Yes, you read that correctly, THE Lincoln Center! ART CLASS will consist of the same news and interviews you've come to expect and love from The Score, but with an expanded scope and a chance for us to spread our wings and try some new ways to showcase art and artistry from our Black, queer perspectives. So hit play and let us tell you all about it!

ART CLASS officially launches everywhere you get fine podcasts on January 16, 2024. However, we'll be soft launching the new show with a live recording this Sunday, October 29 at 4pm at Lincoln Center's David Geffen Hall in New York City. The recording is free and open to the public, so come on by if you're in town. Check out this page for more details. But if you can't make it, don't worry, the live show will be released on ART CLASS' new feed in November. We're still building all that infrastructure, however, so watch this space for all of those links and details.

Thanks so much for all your patience, love and support and we hope you'll be a part of this chapter. We can't wait to keep the party going with all of you wonderful, beautiful Classmates!

About the Podcast

The Score
News and commentary about opera, classical music, and pop culture seen through an antiracist and anti-oppressive lens
It's time to put opera on game! Hosts Lee Bynum, Paige Reynolds, and Rocky Jones 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 the industry'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 People of the Global Majority, 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. New episodes come out every other Wednesday!
