Description
We, Too, Sing America: American Songs Brought Beyond the Veil is Marcus' portrait of American songs from the perspective of what sociologist, author, and civil rights activist W.E.B. DuBois coined the “double consciousness" of Black Americans. The "veil" that creates this second sight has many iterations, but We, Too examines the veil within theater and concert music. Black musicians often sing classical songs or theater compositions composed by Black composers. Unfortunately they are seldom staged, celebrated, or preserved elsewhere. Juxtapose that sentiment with the reaction to genres like the blues and Negro spirituals- created by Black people, incredibly sorrowful, yet universally acclaimed and performed by singers of all stripes. The commercial success of black anguish is what has elevated Black performers Beyond the Veil for generations. However, when that warring spirit is overcome to create positive artistry and music making, We, Too, Sing America.

Marcus Bedinger is a recent NYC transplant from Dayton, OH. He competed in the Harlem Opera Theater Vocal Competition and his debut recital- Portmanteau: A “Celexploration” of Black Concert Music- was a great success. We, Too, Sing America is his second career recital, and he is thrilled to bring it to the heart of so much culture in the West Village. He is joined by talented friends and Martin Garratt on piano.

Love Let the Wind Cry...How I Adore Thee (classical)
