Lift Their Voices Concert Series

The Bop Stop, 2920 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44113

Join us for an evening of music and stories with Tracy Marie backed by a stellar group of musicians. "Lift Their Voices" (LTV) is a community program to expand awareness of the artistic and societal innovations made by historical figures from marginalized communities whose contributions are too often underappreciated. In partnership with Cleveland Montessori School and the Music Settlement's nationally recognized award-winning Bop Stop venue, LTV will engage Roots of American Music (ROAM) teaching artists and local performers to tell the stories of Black, Latinx, Indigenous, and LGBTQIA+ innovators including adults with disabilities. Performers will discuss the challenges faced and contributions made by select historic innovators and discuss how access, racial and social justice challenges have influenced their artist development.
