The African Heritage Cultural Arts Center (AHCAC) celebrates Black History Month with “Art of a Spiritual,” a music concert featuring Miami’s most accomplished Black opera singers performing African-American Spirituals on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. The concert will be held in the Wendell Narcisse Performing Arts Theater at the AHCAC, 6161 NW 22nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33142, located at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Moonlight Way.
The “Art of a Spiritual” concert highlights the technical complexity of the old “Negro Spiritual,” (also referenced in modern times as the “African-American Spiritual”) and celebrates the boldness of their ancestors while enlightening today’s generation. The concert features 15 songs performed by three of Miami’s Black opera singers: Kyaunnee Richardson (award-winning soprano) Angel Refusé (baritone) and Rohan Smith (bass) along with Isis Roberts (mezzo soprano and AHCAC Music Department Director), Karl Richardson (pianist) and the Voices of Heritage (African Heritage Cultural Arts Center Apprenticeship). Notably, Richardson counts among her highest honors singing for President Barack Obama and other dignitaries at the funeral of South Carolina Senator and Reverend Clementa Pinckney.
