Thanks so much to Mary Jane Johnson of Amarillo Opera for stopping by High Plains Morning today to share some info about their upcoming event. As you know, February is Black History Month, and Amarillo has been celebrating. The festivities continue with a fabulous program this Thursday night when the Amarillo Opera team s up with the Amarillo Museum of Art for a free exhibition viewing and vocal performance by North Carolina soprano LaToya Lain. It’ll be held at Amarillo College. She will feature a recital titled “Sound for the Soul” and features  Narrative of a Slave Woman. This free concert is open to the public.

Before the recital, there’s a reception at 6:30pm CT where you can check out the amazing exhibits by African-American artists currently on display: Achievement in Art: The Harmon and Harriet Collection of African American Art: Works on Paper; and Vanessa German: In A Fit of Glory.
