The Berkshire Music Festival series is proud to present "Lift Ev’ry Voice." An Evening of Negro Spirituals and Gospels featuring "The Harlem GospeLive Revue". In celebration of the legacy of the African American Negro Spiritual. The concert will take place on Friday June 22, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Kimball Farms.
Maurice Lynch, Director of Harlem GospeLive, will be conducting the soulful repertoire which will showcase the styles of spiritual music from the 19th and early 20th century America.
Lynch stated “Negro spirituals are so beautiful and constructed like folk songs. … They have more of a rhythmic pulse often times syncopated which drives the rhythmic structure that speak to and move your soul”.
"We performed last year, and our Revue was so well received. So being invited back again to present Negro Spirituals is such an honor. I have a great love for good choral arrangements and this concert will allow us to present a different side, showing the versatility of our Revue. Many of the singers in the show are so diverse and this will give us an opportunity to go classical for an evening."
The program will include “Steal Away”, “Deep River,” “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,”" Jesus Is A Rock”, “I Don't Feel No'ways Tired"," Lift Every Voice And Sing", "Precious Lord", " I Go To The Rock", and many more
moving renditions of Negro Spirituals and Traditional Gospel Music.
This is just one of many events planned by Kimball Farms to celebrate the diversity and cultural history of the Berkshire's............For more information about upcoming events in The Berkshires, please visit..............
