In honor of Black History Month, ANSG is proud to present Gospel in the Gardens. Every February since 1976, the United States has celebrated the achievements of African-Americans during Black History Month. The month-long celebration puts those accomplishments into focus through the media and in classrooms. Enjoy the Gardens and listening to the “good news” songs of this beloved American art form.
As part of its goal of keeping alive an awareness of the African-American heritage, the Ebony Chorale is dedicated to the preservation and performance of the Negro Spiritual, a song that grew out of the African-American slavery experience. Through its performances of the spirituals the chorale seeks to raise, as well as reaffirm, the great tradition and contribution made to American music by African Americans, for the lyrics of the spirituals not only represent religious ideals, but also carry several layers of social, political and theological meanings. The Ebony Chorale represents singers, most of whom are not professional musicians by vocation, who dedicate their time to striving for excellence in the performance of choral music. Each week they give of themselves to be the best vocal musicians possible. Vacations and schedules are arranged to meet the demands of rehearsals and performances. They sing for the joy and the love of music.
