Join Ms. Bennie L. Williams, a renowned and nationally recognized director and teacher of music, for this uplifting evening of spirituals performed by her exciting and diverse choir ensemble. Spirituals are songs created by communities of Africans enslaved in North America during the 18th and 19th Centuries. Arising out of dislocation, violence, and loss, the songs express the sorrow and pain of life without freedom and the hope and endurance of humanity unbowed by oppression. The Bennie L Williams Spiritual Voices is a community choir committed to preserving, performing, and celebrating these profound songs that underlie characteristically American music, such as gospel, jazz, blues, R & B, and hip hop.
This concert is part of Good Shepherd’s Music with a Mission concert series. Admission is free, and a love offering will be collected with all proceeds going to Colorado Haiti Project.
