Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble: “Let Me Stand” – Music of Black Composers

February 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

The music of the African American tradition is rich in history and culture. For hundreds of years, the sounds of the African American spiritual and music of Black composers have shaped classical music in ways we often neglect to acknowledge.
