"Resonance partners with Third Angle New Music and EDPA2 to bare Portland’s redlining history and present a sneak peek at Darrell Grant’s soon-to-be-premiered chamber opera Sanctuaries.

On Wednesday May 5, 2021 at 3:00pm art and activism intersect for the premiere of the 4th episode in Resonance Ensemble’s popular series, Under the Overpass. The free, online film features critically acclaimed jazz pianist Darrell Grant, Oregon Poet Laureate Anis Mojgani, celebrated bass-baritone Damien Geter, and members of EDPA2, a local activist group. Viewers can expect to hear music and poetry written for Grant’s forthcoming chamber opera Sanctuaries, commissioned by Third Angle New Music. Along with the performances will be a roundtable discussion that showcases a multidisciplinary reflection on redlining, gentrification, and the displacement of Black families in Portland.

Viewers can view the premiere starting May 5, 2021 at 3:00pm on Resonance Ensemble’s Youtube channel:" (Promo Copy)
