More Information about the Spring Spiritual Celebration Concert

Traditional spirituals like Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, Deep River, Wade In the Water, and many others, occupy a unique space in American society because of their popularity, but also their influence on American music, culture, and society. In the early 20th century, composers like H.T. Burleigh applied Western classical training to spirituals, creating a new repertoire for the performing stage and pushing the genre to new heights with collaborations with other well-known composers like Antonín Dvořák and Stephen Foster. Originally sung as work songs by enslaved people, spirituals eventually grew to become the first signature music of the United States and they continue to inspire and influence American life today.

We hope you will join us for a concert that will celebrate the spiritual in all of its forms, featuring music by H.T. Burleigh, Stephen Foster, Antonín Dvořák, Moses Hogan, and John Rutter.
