Soul Food &Charlotte: The Opera


Soul Food & Charlotte: The Opera We have food and music of the soul today on Charlotte Talks. First up, our monthly food show with Chef Peter Reinhart. Soul food has become as much a part of the African Diaspora and African American life as it is a set of recipes or cooking style. We'll examine soul food in all of its manifestations. Peter Reinhart - Chef-in-Residence Frederick Opie - Author of Hog and Hominy James Bazzelle - Owner, Mert's Heart and Soul Restaurant Then we'll meet the creators of an innovative performance piece called Squonk Opera. The opera can be written to address the fame and foibles of a specific city and Charlotte has been graced with its own unique show. Jackie Dempsey - Artistic Director, Composer, Pianist, Accordionist, Squonk Opera Steve O'Hearn - Artistic Director, Artist, Wind Player, Squonk Opera
