Off-the-Grid: Inspiration in Adversity

In this two-part series focused on timely repertoire,  Inspiration in Adversity will share the stories of those who created art through adversity in the face of disease and discrimination. From Palestrina’s accounts of the Black Plague to music birthed from the South African HIV epidemic, we will musically explore pandemics throughout history, ending with the uplifting and inspirational music of Dolly Parton.

This concert will air on WMAR-TV and available on their streaming services Sunday, October 18 at 5 pm EDT. The concert will later be streamed on our Facebook page and archived on our website. Off-the-Grid: Inspiration and Adversity will be filmed in the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Theatre.
