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.
