Spirituals Concert: Music from the African Diaspora
Music from the African diaspora has reached from the brush harbor of the plantation to the concert hall. Spirituals have helped to sustain African-Americans throughout the American Experience.
In this free concert, the Beneficent Choir and Friends will present a journey using music from the African diaspora. Come join us as we share by engaging lessons learned, including the use of indigenous dialects, harmonies, and call-and-response.
