At a time when black people were prohibited from walking through the front doors of public spaces, composer and soprano Ella Sheppard (1851-1915) and the Fisk Jubilee Singers performed on international stages for industry barons, cultural icons, and Queen Victoria. That trailblazing work was furthered by composer and baritone Harry T. Burleigh (1866-1949), whose compositions - crossing racial, religious, and class lines - served to bridge the sound and identity of America. Sheppard and Burleigh's barrier-breaking contributions to the foundation of the American music tradition will be examined in an upcoming concert and conference hosted by the Harry T. Burleigh Society on March 2 and 3 at Carnegie Hall.

by A.A. Cristi - Sep 11, 2018

"Dedicated to "creating theater so strikingly original that it instills in young people an enduring awe, love, and respect for the medium," the award-winning Childsplay brings the story of Tomas, the young son of migrant farm workers. A chance encounter introduces him to the Library Lady, who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read; his delight in books is equaled by his pride in teaching Spanish to the Library Lady.
