Nationally-recognized baritone vocalist, Keith Spencer, and award-winning composer and arranger, Peter Hilliard, team up once again after their critically-acclaimed collaboration, Brothers on Broadway, to present Lord, Write My Name – A Gospel and African American Experience in Spirituals
Lord, Write My Name is an inspirational musical tapestry of African American Spirituals interspersed with narratives, poetry, and letters penned by enslaved, emancipated, and iconic Black people throughout history. This educational presentation explores themes of mourning expressed through Spirituals countered by the powerful and redemptive story of the Gospel message.
In this masterful collection of song and word, Spencer, accompanied by Hilliard on piano, performs well-known Spirituals such as “Go Down, Moses,” “Walk Together Children,” “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho,” “Steal Away,” and several others brilliantly reimagined and arranged by Hilliard.
This beautiful and uplifting concert shares themes of social justice, identity, and the hope that connects us all.
