NOTE: Please check back here on Friday, February 18 at 7pm MST to see the live broadcast of this event.
On Friday, February 18, please welcome Sankofa, a 25-voice a cappella ensemble group that is part of the Spirituals Project. The Spirituals Project is dedicated to preserving and revitalizing the music and teachings of the sacred songs called “spirituals,” created and first sung by enslaved Africans in America in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Sankofa, named for the African adinkra symbol for the wisdom in learning from the past as we move toward bulding the future, is dedicated to sharing beautiful concertized versions of the spirituals.
The concert will take place in the Boettcher Foundation Community Room on the first floor of Craig Hall. A dessert reception will follow the performance.
There is no charge for this event, but you must register online in advance. For additional information, and to see other upcoming events, click here
