Community Sings: Singing in the African American Tradition

May 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Tickets are required and include Museum admission.

A RISE POP-UP EVENT CURATED BY SHEA ROSE
Community Sings™ brings people of all ages and skill levels together to create beautiful and empowering music. Led by Dr. Ysa├┐e Maria Barnwell, formerly of Sweet Honey In The Rock, participants will sing rhythms, chants and songs from African and African American traditions. No experience is necessary. The only prerequisite is a love of music and song! Come and be moved by the power of music in community.

LECTURE
Why, how, when and for whom do we make music? Depending on your world view, the answers may differ widely. We will explore these questions as an introduction to the music created by African Americans.

TICKETS

Complimentary, but reservations are required. Space permitting. Maximum 4 tickets per person. If you have a larger group, please email Rhea Vedro at rvedro@isgm.org.
