A Celebration of Music Inspired by African-American Culture
Celebrating the music of African-American culture, spanning more than 200 years, this production will highlight gospel, spirituals, African drums, and the Harlem Renaissance. Performed by local artists and featuring arias, duets, and ensembles steeped in African-American history and culture, yet universal in their emotional and musical appeal, this unique program reintroduces a rich body of work passed down through oral history. The Journey aims to share the African-American experience with audiences of all ages, races, and religions.
The Journey will also feature performances by the Thiossane West African Dance Institute, New Salem Baptist Church, St. Dominic Catholic Church, the Lincoln Theatre Incubation Program, and the South Side Boys and Girls Club.
