Solange Knowles will be curating the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Spring Music Series, the venue announced on Wednesday.
Through her multidisciplinary creative imprint Saint Heron, the superstar singer/songwriter will select the Academy’s forthcoming concerts, films, performance art showcases, dance shows and theatrical pieces, honoring BAM’s “intergenerational and genre-spanning” impact of forward-minded artists, according to a press release obtained by Billboard.
“We’re excited to work with Solange and her Saint Heron collective for this incredible music series of genre-crossing artists presented in unprecedented ways,” David Binder, BAM’s artistic director said in the statement. “Her experimental, global, and authentic approach consistently pushes the boundary of what performance can be and charts new pathways for audiences to connect. We can’t wait to see how this transpires on our stages.”
The complete list of performances, set to begin in the winter of 2023, will be announced soon.
The “Cranes in the Sky” singer moved into musical composition earlier this year, writing the score for the New York City Ballet’s Play Time, which premiered at the end of September as part of the celebrated dance troupe’s Fall Fashion Gala.
