In this concert/recital, I seek to help others understand the impact and contributions RH has made in our world throughout history. My approach synthesizes elements of the Negro Spirituals, Spirituals, and Spiritual-like tunes. From the 30 of my Favorite Spirituals songbook, I am honored to share 20 selections celebrating the remarkable art and form of the Religious Negro Spirituals. The dialogue and partnership of this music passes on the heritage and tradition that connects our diverse cultures and generations, thereby enriching and strengthening our communities.
