Sweet Honey in the Rock 40th Anniversary Celebration: Forty and Fierce! Presented by Strathmore Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 8:00 PM Music Center at Strathmore
This globally treasured a cappella ensemble moves mountains with its music, a repertoire steeped in the sacred songs of the Black church, the clarion call of the civil rights movement, and the struggle for justice everywhere. Chronicling the stories of the women who built the ensemble, this moving 40th anniversary blends songs old and new, multi-media components, movement and spoken word. “The gold standard...a sound so pure that it does not seem humanly possible” (Fort Worth Star Telegram).
Come early for a free pre-concert lecture from vocalist and songwriter Rochelle Rice. 6:30PM in Education Room 402. Unfortunately, the sign language interpreter will nto be available for the lecture.
This concert will run approximately 110 minutes with intermission.
