One way to ground ourselves in the power of spirituals as we begin a year of focus on the music and its meaning is to attend live concerts. We have such an opportunity THIS SUNDAY, when the historic Legend Singers perform in Clayton at a free concert.
You can hear first hand what this local choir does to maintain the performance of spirituals and other African-American music. The sold out concert has been moved into the sanctuary of the Episcopal Church of St Michael in St George and they now have additional seating, so be sure to register using the link below and save your spot. This is the local group that Trinity is considering giving our collected royalties to throughout this year.
