Denver Art Song Project presents a performance of African-American Art Songs curated by soprano, Stephanie Ann Ball. She and baritone Dr. Paul Griggsby will take you on a moving journey through art songs written by some of history's most influential African-American composers, and the texts of America's most prominent African-American wordsmiths. Over the course of the evening you will hear the music of celebrated favorites such as Undine Smith Moore, William Grant Still, Adolphus Hailstork, Hall Johnson and more. The melodies will be enhanced by the powerful words of Langston Hughes, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others.
