Introducing BBNB 3.0!

Bent But Not Broken — the first and only of its kind — is a four-day music conference amplifying the musical contributions and accomplishments of Black vocal artists across time and genres. Now in its third year, BBNB 3.0 offers interest sessions, immersion choirs, panel discussions, honor choirs, and performances. This year, conference attendees will have the opportunity to focus on the interlocking concepts of self-work, homework, and hard work through sessions led by internationally acclaimed scholars and musicians.
