Don’t miss Diversity Voices’ spring concert!

ECHOES of AFRICA

Sunday, May 7 at 3 p.m.

Glenridge Performing Arts Center

7333 Scotland Way,

Sarasota, FL 34238

Some of Diversity’s singers preparing for the “Echoes of Africa” concert to be held May 7.

We’re excited to say that Diversity’s singers will be joined by the talented students of Booker High School’s Visual and Performing Arts Program!

Join us for a wonderful afternoon celebrating music from the continent of Africa, as well as Western music that has been influenced by African music. We’ll perform folk songs from South Africa, Kenya, the Congo, Tanzania, Ethiopia, the Sudan and more. One remarkable thing about the music is that, despite the hardships of poverty and disease that plague so many African communities, the music is always rhythmic and joyous. We’ll also sing several well-known spirituals and some rousing songs from the Civil Rights Era. At the end of the concert, Diversity Voices and Booker High’s students will come together to sing “Circle of Life” from the 1994 Broadway hit The Lion King. Diversity’s Artistic Director, Jon Arterton, will lead the singers. Bruce L. Ensinger will provide piano accompaniment.

 Diversity is welcoming new singers!

Come sing with us! No auditions are required. We’d love to have you join our LGBT and LGBT-friendly chorus. Learning tracks are provided for singers – so even if you don’t read music, it’s easy to learn!

Rehearsals for our Fall concert begin on September 14, 2017 and are held every Thursday night beginning at 7 p.m. The location is St. Andrew United Church of Christ, 6908 S. Beneva Rd., Sarasota, FL 34238. Email us at contact@diversitysarasota.org or leave a message at 888-550-6279.
