AMERICAN MODERN OPERA COMPANY AND KNOXVILLE SYMPHONY STRINGS WITH DAVÓNE TINES

Bass-baritone Davóne Tines (a “singer of immense power and fervor,” Los Angeles Times) performs with Knoxville Symphony Orchestra strings in Were You There, an hour-long theatrical meditation featuring hymns, spirituals, songs, and audience participation. The piece asks, “How do we move from darkness to light, how do we find spiritual communion?”
