“Nothing less than an international treasure.” JazzTimes
Brimming with energy and thrilling transcendent harmonies, the three-time Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir is beloved the world over for its ensemble flair and indomitable spirit. Commemorating South Africa’s Freedom Movement and the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., they'll perform a rousing program of South African gospel and spirituals in a variety of languages, and heartfelt renditions of songs made famous by Billie Holiday, James Brown, Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield and Aretha Franklin. Prepare to be uplifted by 17 transcendent voices and a driving percussion section!
Through its Justice for All Programming Initiative, A&L remains committed to addressing issues of social injustice
