The Parables Project


This spring, U of MN Opera's David Walsh is taking on religion, culture, and art in our society. Partnering not only with surrounding U departments such as the Center for Jewish Studies and Classical and Near Eastern Studies, he is also working with the surrounding public schools and community organizations including the American Composer's Forum and the Confederation of Somali Community to foster significant artistic and community dialog. The Parables oratorio will be work-shopped with our students and in performance and field visits, it will be book-ended by the music of diverse religious cultures.


Hi -- Just a quick note to suggest connecting to the Religious Studies Program's work on Shared Cultural Spaces: Islam and the West in the Arts and Sciences. This community engagement project worked with many members of the local Muslim community to host a successful conference and two community workshops, and to develop a television program with TPT.
