CLASSICAL | Jessye Norman


The incomparable Jessye Norman will perform a benefit concert at the Eastman Theatre for Action for a Better Community, Inc. this Sunday. Joining her for the program, called "The African American Cultural Legacy," will be special guests Garth Fagan Dance and pianist Mark Markham. Action for a Better Community is an agency that promotes and provides opportunities for low-income individuals and families to become self-sufficient. Norman has performed leading roles in operas the world over, in basically every concert hall you have ever heard of. She has won five Grammy Awards. Would it matter if she appeared and sang lullabies that would honor the children who live a life fighting poverty and deprivation? Make sure that you go.
