PROGRAM NOTE

African American singer Carole Alston came to Vienna 30 years ago. The research for a new stage production brings her back to her homeland where she follows the traces of her musical sisters Alberta Hunter, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan. The search for the origins of blues and jazz brings Carole closer to her own roots. The history of slavery and segregated America becomes palpable through the music and the remarkable stories about the brave women who defied the hardship of their times.
