Denyce Graves Launches ‘Shared Voices’

Headshot of Denyce GravesThrough a partnership forged by the Denyce Graves Foundation, the Peabody Conservatory joins a consortium of conservatories, historically Black colleges and universities, and the Metropolitan Opera to create an innovative student exchange program. Shared Voices was envisioned by Graves, Peabody’s Rosa Ponselle Distinguished Faculty Artist, to support the next generation of talented young artists and contribute to a more diverse classical vocal arts landscape. Underwritten by the Ford Foundation, Shared Voices’ inaugural 16-student cohort will benefit from shared learning and performance opportunities bringing together the students and faculty from Howard, Fisk University, Morgan State University, and Morehouse College with those at Peabody, the Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, and Oberlin College. Shared voices has recently been featured in the Washington Post. For more information, visit the Shared Voices website:
