Our season opener -- featuring the music of Africa and African-American composers, singers, groups, and musicians! You will delight to the songs of Gladys Knight and the Pips, Andre Thomas, Raymond Wise & Billy Strayhorn -- tunes such as "Take the A Train" and "Iza Ngomso" will take you on a musical journey through this rich cultural heritage of music!
We are so excited to announce the collaboration with the Thiossane West African Dance Institute for two numbers on this concert. The dancers and drummers from Thiossane will bring their unique artistry and enhance this concert with the dimension of dance!
This concert is generously supported by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
