I am excited to present this year's concert, Let the Strings Speak AMEN: from HYMNS to HIP HOP; using the vibrations of string instruments as the foundation for the music, adding dance and spoken word, stimulating all of your senses. The listener and observer are welcomed to a musical journey and a true celebration of African American culture.
This showcase is more than a concert; it is a vehicle for healing that utilizes a collaborative approach, bringing together local musicians and entertainers to an intergenerational audience at the iconic Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. Langston is a hub for Black arts and culture where Black brilliance is cultivated.
