The National Marian Anderson Museum could not be more proud of our very own exceptional Marian Anderson Scholar Artist Basso Kevin Thompson , who on September 22nd 2018 delivered a marvelous performance of 'King Solomon' with the Odyssey Opera of Boston MA Opera "La Reine De Saba". The reviews are in and this is just one of the many celebrated reviews for his dynamic portrayal;
- "the singing of bass Kevin Thompson proved an audience favorite. It is a true basso, with a superhuman low register and a voluminous sound. He was the only cast member who was consistently audible in all the registers of his voice."
