Her witty and inspired solo show, Opera from a Sistah’s Point of View, dispels the common myths of opera.

Opera From a Sistah’s Point of View is suited for audiences of all sizes and ages with adaptable program length ranging from 30 minutes to one hour and 30 minutes.
Capturing the attention of 800 middle-school students for 90 minutes is quite a feat…even the boys left the auditorium smiling and humming “Summertime”…their teachers were in a happy state of shock. At her sold-out evening concert two days later, the diverse, hometown audience was equally entranced!

The children loved listening to her and described her singing as a lasso that was tossed out, a rope which wrapped around the audience, and then a tug that pulled them back in! They were absolutely mesmerized by Ms. Brown’s glorious singing and witty, charming stage presence, and they were beaming all the way back to school.

Angela’s captivating performance of Opera from a Sistah’s Point of View for over 2,000 Buffalo Public School students was a life changing experience for many of them. The students were on the edge of their seats during the performance taking in every note and interesting background story told by Angela.
