Roland W. Hayes probably isn’t a name that conjures up memories of history or social studies classes, but the man had a huge impact on history, nonetheless. He was a groundbreaking lyric tenor who broke through class and race boundaries left and right throughout his musical career. He interpreted European art songs and also created a repertoire of classic Negro spirituals — he was so good he could fill both Carnegie Hall and the New York Symphony Hall in Boston three times a season. This stage show will tell a tremendous story.
