Talented young singers from the Detroit School of Arts (DSA) recently competed for an opportunity to receive a master class with renowned mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves during a vocal competition at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. The event was free and open to the public as part of the Margaret Garner Educational Partnership.
The students chosen to compete were from a preliminary round of performances last month at DSA. Each contestant performed two pieces – one operatic and one spiritual from the 1800’s, the time period during which Margaret Garner lived.
The DSA student winners were:
- Terrance Buck, 17 Tenor
- Jamila Davidson, 17mezzo-soprano
- Jocylynn Taylor, 17, mezzo-soprano
Congratulations to all the students who competed and the winners!
