Majesty of the Spiritual
August 28, 2022
Majesty of the Spiritual

On August 28th at 3:00 PM in  Herbst Theater 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 12 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.
