Pittsburgh Performs: Sirens & Queens by Anqwenique

Join Chamber Music Pittsburgh and Boom Concepts at East Liberty's Hotel Indigo  in the Wallace’s Whiskey Room + Kitchen for our Pittsburgh Performs concert Sirens & Queens, a project of vocalist Anqwenique. Soprano, Anqwenique Kinsel presents contemporary works by Black Women composers, highlighting and elevating their accomplishments in the classical music field. The project Sirens & Queens aim to explore non-sacred, obscure works that are not performed often in order to expose, educate, entertain and delight audiences in stories and musical experiences. In order to present a more accurate, contemporary narrative of the Black experience in a classical music context. Tackling issues of diversity in the field by creating and curating content that relates to marginalized communities. This project began through Anqwenique's search for classical music content that reflected her cultural experiences as a Black Woman. Ultimately leading her to find works that are captivating, musically proficient, and technically complex, although do not always appear in standard classical repertoire. Anqwenique believes that part of combatting racism in creative spaces is to challenge how arts based institutions, place value on works by artists of color.
