American Spiritual Ensemble to perform at DCA Sept. 14
CAMBRIDGE — The American Spiritual Ensemble will perform at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the Dorchester Center for the Arts.
The group, which has performed all over the world, will present in the second floor George B. Todd Performance Hall. The event is sponsored by MTS Broadcasting and the Maryland State Arts Council.
The American Spiritual Ensemble was founded by Everett McCorvey in 1995. Its vocalists have sung in theaters and opera houses around the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and in Italy, Germany, Britain, Scotland, Spain and Japan.
“It seems fitting to celebrate these spirituals here in the birthplace of Harriet Tubman,” said DCA Executive Director Mickey Love. “In addition to the spirituals, there will be opera and Broadway music — something for everyone — all performed by some of the most talented and gifted vocalists from around the countr y.”
Advance tickets are $20 for DCA members, $25 for nonmembers and $10 for students. At the door, tickets will be $30 for members and nonmembers, and $15 for students. Seating is limited, so advance ticket purchases are encouraged.
