A City Called Heaven: A Concert of Spirituals

Explore the rich and varied tradition of the African American spiritual with the 18th Street Singers at our 10th Annual Winter Concert. From the classic arrangements of William Dawson and Henry T. Burleigh to contemporary interpretations from Moses Hogan and Dr. Ysaye Barnwell, these songs of exuberant praise and heart-wrenching longing create a powerful connection between the trials and triumphs of the African-American experience and all those who hope for a better future. 

We hope you join us to hear what W.E.B. Du Bois described as "the most beautiful expression of human experience born this side of the seas."
