Majesty of the Spiritual
Regular Price: $45 - $95
Run Time: 1 Hour, 30 Minutes
On August 28th at 3:00 PM Noontime Concerts in association with the Living Heritage Foundation is thrilled to present "Majesty of the Spiritual", a trans-figurative musical experience, an opening of the heart and soul that reveals the Spiritual as a continually evolving art form, as deeply rooted in the present as it is in the past.
The program features 11 award-winning singers from the great opera houses of the world joined by the legendary Frederica von Stade singing the works of three living African American composers, Lena McLin, Roland Carter, and Jacqueline B. Hairston. The event will also feature a film component highlighting each composer.
Curated by Robert Sims, baritone, "Majesty of the Spiritual" is an intimate gathering of mighty forces, much more than simply a musical concert, "Majesty of the Spiritual" is a testimony in music to the indomitable will that navigated an impossibly tragic, unforgettable past, and a vivid demonstration of musical lineage and poetic tradition, dynamic and powerfully alive today.
