Some Links to what’s coming up:
On Saturday, April 7, 2018, the opera Monte & Pinky, featuring Erin Wind as Monte and Del Sykes as Pinky, will be performed by Richmond Concert Opera (http://www.capitoloperarichmond.com/) at the Black History Museum in Richmond (http://blackhistorymuseum.org/) at 2:00 p.m.
It will be followed by dramatic readings featuring Del Sykes, Diana Carver, and Richard Rose on the lives of domestic workers during the Great Migration.
Besides the reading, another companion to Monte & Pinky is the publication of Coming Around, a poetry collection by Richard Rose. Although the general release will be in August, some advanced copies will be available for some upcoming events. Rose will speak during the RVA Literary Crawl (2018_RVALitCrawl ) at the Tottering Teacup (https://www.thetotteringteacup.com/) with other poets on April 21 at 5:00 pm: https://www.facebook.com/events/210108353078924/
On April 22, both Monte & Pinky and Amber will be produced as STRIKE THE ROCK! in a concert reading at the Church of the Holy Comforter (http://hoco.org) at 2:00 p.m.
An extended reading from Coming Around is planned for late April or early May. Details TBD.
