Carnegie Hall and the Apollo Theater team up to present a concert of Spirituals and gospel music. The program will trace the development of the Spiritual, from its African roots, to solo vocal performances and choral arrangements. Following intermission, choirs from around New York City will join forces for a joyous celebration of gospel music.
