CSW Celebrates Black History Month with Africano Waltham and Opera unMet

Opera unMet, a Boston community-based opera company run by former CSW music teacher Marshall Hughes, offered a moving performance at CSW's all-school assembly. The group performed excerpts from Ragtime, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Bizet’s’ Carmen, and Verdi’s Aida. Here is a short recording from the morning
CSW first connected with Africano Waltham (African Cultural Services, Inc.), an organization that helps to provide a safe space, education, mental health assistance and cultural connections to African immigrant youth, through the CE portion of the PACE program, with students in the "Immigrant and Refugee Assistance" group helping to develop an informational pamphlet. In celebration of Black History Month, CSW invited its friends from Africano to perform and engage with students during assembly.
