An Evening with Peter Braithwaite Online event via Zoom Join Opera singer Peter Brathwaite for an extraordinary evening detailing his passion for 'degenerate music', the ways in which his work has paid tribute to and been informed by Black histories in Britain, and his extraordinary lockdown project to discover Black portraiture. Taking the form of a Q&A, this evening will allow audiences to discover how Peter's astonishing visual project was conceived and brought to life, and how it intersects with his long standing passion for the arts, and for the power of music and of painting at some of history's darkest and most painful moments. This is an unparalleled opportunity to quiz this talented and versatile artist and performer, and to see key moments of England's -- and the world's -- artistic and musical heritage in new ways.
