CANCELED 9th Annual Shirley Verrett Award Ceremony: Prof. Daniel Washington

In accordance with the Unversity-wide measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, this performance has been canceled.

This year’s award will be presented to Professor Daniel Washington (voice). Dr. Washington is being recognized for his significant support and advocacy on behalf of diverse students and faculty artists at U-M and innovative diversity and inclusion impact on U-M and beyond through his performances and service.

The Shirley Verrett Award was created in 2011 by the Office of the Senior Vice Provost in honor of the late Shirley Verrett, a teacher who “would have walked the world over for her students.” The award is administered by the U-M Women of Color in the Academy Project at the Center for the Education of Women and recognizes a faculty member whose teaching, performance, scholarship or service supports the success of female students or faculty in the arts who come from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds. Verrett was a James Earl Jones Distinguished University Professor of Voice at the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance, as well as an internationally acclaimed opera singer who was one of the pioneering leaders in the generation of black opera singers. She performed more than 40 roles all over the world during the course of her four-decade career.
