In response to the tragic death of George Floyd, Georgia Tech’s own B.E. Boykin has composed original music for a new opera titled “Art is a Verb”. The piece is organized into five sections and features four vocalists: Karen Slack (soprano), Andy Acosta (tenor), Sidney Outlaw (baritone), and Andy Wilkowske (baritone). Each singer has chosen a song to perform along with the original music composed by Boykin. “Art is a Verb” debuts on Saturday, February 27th as part of the 2021 MN Opera Virtual Benefit. It is free to the public with a pre-show event at 6:30pm followed by the main program at 7pm. Join us and register here [mnopera.org/virtual-benefit](http://mnopera.org/virtual-benefit).
