Charlie and the Wolf
Dave Ragland Jr. and Mary McCallum
Join us for the public world premiere of Charlie and the Wolf, an original opera composed by Dave Ragland, Jr. with lyrics by Mary McCallum.
The piece centers on an imaginary meeting between jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker and classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and reminds us that each of us is playing with the same notes... we just interpret them differently. This piece is the perfect addition to other local Juneteenth happenings celebrating Black creativity and joy!
