Sunday, May 24, 4pm
Saint Joseph Catholic Church
6805 Mast Road, Dexter
Dexter, Detroit, and South Lyon church choirs will unite in song with two-time Emmy award winner and University of Michigan music professor Eugene Rogers to take the audience through a journey of Afro-American sacred choral music.
In 2011, Dr. Rogers traveled to and studied the music and traditions of East Africa, publishing editions of Tanzanian choral music in the Hal Leonard World Music series. Now, thanks to a grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts, we are pleased to offer this concert under the baton of one of America’s leading choral conductors. Dr. Rogers will comment on the different styles of African choral music during the concert and will teach the audience a song by rote at the end of the program.
Bring the family and make this part of your Memorial Day celebration. Together, we will witness music’s power to unite us.
