Black History Month

The Grand 1894 Opera House has a rich history of presenting a diverse and powerful array of artists during its history.  We are proud to celebrate Black History month and invite you to view our windows to bring back memories of so many of our favorites over the years.   This sampling of individual artists, groups and companies represents a variety of genres, from blues and jazz, pop and classical to dance, theatre and the spoken word.    It is a walk through our past and present during this month of celebration.   The Grand is committed to continuing its history of diversity, equity and inclusion in the arts.
