  • UM Gusman Concert Hall 1314 Miller Drive Coral Gables, FL, 33146 United States (map)

In honor of Black History Month, Frost voice faculty artists Jeanette Thompson and Robynne Redmon join Frost pianists Shelly Berg and Alan Johnson in a voice recital, which will include honoring the history and evolution of the Spiritual. A product of the introduction of Christianity into slaves’ lives, Spirituals also became a coded means of communicating resistance and escape. In time, Spirituals became a formative piece in the development of jazz and blues and has remained a source of inspiration to many jazz artists today.
