Windham Orchestra in Concert
On Sunday, March 28 at 3 p.m. at the Latchis Theatre in Brattleboro, the Windham Orchestra, under the direction of Hugh Keelan, will celebrate the poignant and powerful spirituals created by enslaved African people in America, and the music they have inspired.
The work of Harry Burleigh, the grandson of a slave, born in Erie, Pennsylvania, and one of a tiny number of black musicians of his time trained in a European Classical tradition, provided the inspiration for two of the compositions to be performed during the Windham Orchestra's African-American Spirituals Concert.
Proceeds from this concert will benefit the Brattleboro Music Center's Music in the Schools program. Tickets, general admission $15, students/seniors $7, donors $25, patrons $50, are available in advance by calling the BMC at 257-4523 or visiting www.brattleborotix.com.
