Givonna Joseph, mezzo-soprano


"Cab Rides" on NOLA Vie Add Video

CAB RIDES: GIVONNA JOSEPH By Renée Peck Take a Cab Ride with us! NolaVie gets up-close and personal with local notables in this new series of back-seat video interviews sponsored by TaxiCabApp. Ride along and eavesdrop as New Orleanians talk about the city they love and reveal its secrets. For our first set of Cab Rides, we rode shotgun with personalities drawn from the city?s music scene. Today, New Orleans mezzo-soprano Givonna Joseph, founder and director of Opera Creole, heads from Marigny Opera House, where her company often performs, to Xavier University, where they rehearse. The movie's lovely audio of Belle Nuit from Tales of Hoffman is sung by Givonna and her daughter, Aria Mason, Co-Founder of OperaCreole.

Hello Givonna, Your piece on NPR this morning sent us rushing to the computer to look you up to make sure you were the person we remember from our wedding years ago. I was in your wedding as Gilbert's best man and he was my best man. You sang so beautifully at our wedding. Virginia and I both read what you are doing with the revival of our people's music and your running of an opera company and thought that it was spectacular. We have very fond memories of you and your beautiful voice. Best Wishes, Corrie and Virginia in Seattle, WA
